There are various attributes that files can have such as hidden or system which could affect results with windows search & file manager results.

What you might do is try a different search program. Check out the "Portable Zip 64-bit version" of Everything (or "Portable Zip" if you only have a 32-bit OS installed). It is a free search program that may work better for you.
