I can't help but notice, at l least on this computer, that search can't find a file. Even when I test with a file I know exists, search finds nothing. Anyone else having this issue?

Search, be default, will only look in Indexed locations - so if you don't store the file in an area that's indexed, it won't be found with a normal search. For those of us who disable the Indexing service - this is a real PITA.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

I figured it out. You have to tell it to Search Everywhere. Yeah, let's do that, since I don't know where it is. :huh:

I don't get it. Now it's working normally. I must have been doing something wrong. :huh:
