I am trying to use F&RR primarily as a file search tool. I have ~ 7,700 files in a "My Projects" folder under "My Documents." There are many subfolders in a fairly deep hierarchy under My Projects.
I want to be able to quickly search for specific files OR folders using F&RR. My problem is that sometimes this works beautifully, sometimes not at all.
For example, I have this folder:
G:\Documents and Settings\...\journal articles\individual differences (JASIST)
If I launch F&RR and search for 'individual,' it comes right up as the first hit. Perfect.
But I also have this folder:
G:\Documents and Settings\...\My Projects\Consulting
If I launch F&RR and search for 'consulting'--no results. Same for any shorter string (e.g. 'consult') or 'consult*'.
I've seen similar discrepancies with other folders and files--can't see any obvious pattern.
