also, i forgot to note that the smart folder text file doesn't like escaped paths, e.g.: the kind you get when you drag a file in the terminal:

Bad:

		<key>SearchScopes</key>
		<array>
			<string>/Volumes/external\ hard\ drive/myfolder</string>
		</array>


Good:

		<key>SearchScopes</key>
		<array>
			<string>/Volumes/external hard drive/myfolder</string>
		</array>
