[FIX] local music not showing up in Xbox music app

If you upgraded to Windows 8 and are using the Xbox music app, you may experience an issue where local music does not show up. This is most likely caused by your “old” (pre-upgrade) libraries not being included in Windows 8′s search index.

To fix this issue, go to search settings (Win-W hotkey) and type “indexing options”, then browse to the top of your music folder and add it to the index. This is an unfortunate known issue with how libraries and the indexer interact across an upgrade.
