I am feeling really frustrated by Spotlight ( and Tiger in general). It's probably just because I don't understand it yet...
My primary search technique is to use the search box which is at the top of every Finder window (not the Spotlight icon in the menu bar).
I usually like to limit my search results to the Finder window in which I have entered the search term. (I think this closely mimics Panthers ability to search the selected folder only)
But, I am not getting reliable results for folders within my (File Vaulted) Home folder.
-I perform a search for a known document and it simply does not show up...
--Same results if I use the actual Spotlight menu.
I don't have any folders from my Home directory in the Spotlight Privacy tab, and I don't have any document types unchecked in the Search results pane.
Any tips on how I can get Spotlight to work for me?
