Hello!

If you mount all of your partitions from the file manager, they will likely all be mounted in the same location. For example, in Xubuntu 13.04, mounting each drive will give each a unique folder in /media/<username>.

Additionally, if you search from / (File System), it will search absolutely everything on your system that is mounted.
