Windows 7 search

If I looked for a file on my system using Windows XP, I could tell the search where (which drive) to check for the file. The Windows 7 version seems to me to only search generally and, for example when I searched for 'MS Office Excel Converter' which I know was on a memory stick which the system had set to drive J:\, the Windows 7 search could not find it. How can I get to a more usable search facility in Windows 7
