Find 'non-findable' files
Authored by: ex2bot on Jan 06, '09 01:55:31PM

I want to reiterate what (I believe) Tifighter said: "Spotlight CAN access system files." Do a smart search, look in "Kind - other" for "system files". If you wish, check the box that will put "system files" on the "Kind" menu.

I use this all the time when looking for more obscure files. System files, as near as I can tell, finds any file at all--as long as you can access it.
