(Sorry, I know it was a really bad pun...)

I'm still not understanding Searching and the Search Folders options.  I just created, for testing purposes, a directory structure like this on my D: drive:  First/Second/Third/Test.txt.

My D: drive has a folder on it called Backups, which contains a sync/backup structure for multiple folders on my C: drive (I use FileBack to maintain a few copies of certain things...).  So, I've created a Search Folder (in FaRR's Lists options) with these properties:  Name - D:\Backups (I used the folder selector to make sure there was no typo), Subdirectory Search Depth - 0, Score - -1000 (out of desperation).  Then, in FaRR, if I type "d:\first test", FaRR finds 28 items in 15 seconds, and the first 27 of them are in "D:\Backups\My Documents".  The last one is "D:\First\Second\Third\test.txt".  What am I doing wrong?

FWIW, if I type "D:\First" into FaRR, I get 2 items:  D:\First and D:\First\Second.  Same thing if I add a space after that string - the wheels don't come off until I type a non-space character after that...
