Microsoft Private Folder and Desktop Search

Microsoft pulled the Microsoft Private Folder some time ago, but a number of people had already downloaded it. I did notice that Windows Desktop Search results can end up listing files from the Private Folder. I would imagine these files get indexed when the folder is unlocked.

The content of the file is still not visible even in the preview pain if the folder is locked, but the information is evidently available within the index as it does list the files in which your search term is found, which may not be a desired result.
