I'm having problems with the search in Finder windows in MacOS X 10.6.8.
If I'm typing a search keyword in the textbox in a finder window and search for "file name" or "content", I get no or only a few results, although there should be much more results.
Is this a bug in OS X?
e.g. if I activate the search for "file name" and type "a" in the text box, I get 8 results. When I search for "b" instead, I get 61 results, and 60 of them have an "a" in the file name!
Is this a known bug?
Is there a solution?
Edit: I've tried to
- rebuild the spotlight index with
sudo mdutil -E _PathOfPartition_
- repaired permissions on the startup drive
... but no change - Finder/Spotlight does not list files as results, although they exist and match the search criteria.
