In SharePoint 2013 - what are the steps to take in order for SharePoint search through a second document library that lives on the same site.

I went to site contents from my root location on my site collection, created a second document library, gave it a name, made sure it was searchable through advance settings, and finally attempted to query it with search.

...but for some reason it is not picking up any results when I run the query builder under search in site settings. It only likes to read my documents out of my Site Collection Documents folder...why is that?

Thanks for any tips

  • did you perform full/incremental crawl or have you enabled Continous crawl on that server? – Unnie Jan 28 '15 at 8:56
  • Incremental crawls are occurring every 15 minutes and full crawls are on saturdays. What else should I check... – klewis Jan 28 '15 at 11:10
  • im still stuck on this issue - does anyone have any ideas why isearch query builder will not search more than one document library? – klewis Jan 31 '15 at 13:07
