comment Finder search does not find all relevant documents MacOS 10.6.8
@Josh: did you see the solution, I finally found? (owner of files has to be me?) Sure, if you're working with different accounts of files owned by other people, spotlight seems to be really useless.

@patrix, at JRobert: thank you for your help. For the "real" solution see my answer: apple.stackexchange.com/questions/28821/…

@patrix: the data partition has 15 GB (of 300 GB) free space, the system partition has 20 GB (of 100 GB) free.

no success so far: I've tried to repair permissions, but it did not change anything (see the edit of my question). Is it possible that spotlight does not finish creating the index for some strange reason?

@patrix I rebuilt the index, but it did not change anything. patrix, what do you mean by "guess what I may be looking for?" If I type an "a", I expect to get all files with "a" in their name and not any guess of my Computer! And if I type the whole word, it does not find them either. Example: I'm searching in a folder for the word "Anschreiben" in the filename. Easyfind has 44 results, Finder 0 !!

it seems not to work - also with option -E the spotlight menu stays accessible and I get the "Indexing enabled" prompt instantly.

Does the terminal command mdutil -i really rebuild the index? I launched it and instantly got /: Indexing enabled. I think it needs option **-EÜÜ instead. -> http://macstuff.beachdogs.org/blog/?p=38

I'm not talking about a spotlight search but about a search in a Finder window limited to the actual directory. Nevertheless my search should have had at least 60 results, but showed only 8. I'll try to rebuild the index now.

thanks I'll try to rebuild the index later (when there is time for the "coffee"). However maybe my description was unclear: I first searched for "a" and then for "b" (not ab!), but the results for "b" also had an "a" in their name which clearly shows that there should have been more results for "a"
