You need to change to whatever folder you find while you're searching. To search the whole drive means you could get into maximum recursion problems. Search for FileFindNext and posts by SmoKe_N, I'm fairly sure he's written a script which doesn't use recursion and so avoids that problem. Edited by martin

Serial port communications UDF Includes functions for binary transmission and reception.printing UDF Useful for graphs, forms, labels, reports etc.Add User Call Tips to SciTE for functions in UDFs not included with AutoIt and for your own scripts.Functions with parameters in OnEvent mode and for Hot Keys One function replaces GuiSetOnEvent, GuiCtrlSetOnEvent and HotKeySet.UDF IsConnected2 for notification of status of connected state of many urls or IPs, without slowing the script.

I come across this tread with AutoIt Search Engine. Not bad, pretty fast search. Suggest give it a try
