Encountering a really bizarre error on a new iMac (5K, Late 2015) that is running Sierra.
There is a folder called "Job applications" in my Documents folder that shows up in a Finder search of This Mac with a search string of "Job".
A search string of "Job applications", however, returns no results at all.
Other folders have the same issue while others do not. If I make a brand new folder called "Job applications", the problem persists. My old iMac (27", Late 2009) running El Capitan (from which I transferred the files to my new iMac) has the same issue. My Macbook Pro (Retina, 13", Early 2015) running Sierra does not have the problem.
I believe Finder uses the same index as Spotlight, which is confusing since Spotlight correctly returns the results. I rebuilt the index for the Desktop folder, which contains some of the problematic folders, to no avail. Any ideas? I'll try rebuilding the entire index in the meantime.
