Find 'non-findable' files
Authored by: Aeschylus on Jan 09, '09 06:28:10PM
I checked this. 14 were in packages, 6 were invisible (but theoretically Spotlight should have found these). There were 17 remaining files plus the 6 invisible ones - either 10 or 16 more than Spotlight found. Of course I'll still need spotlight, and I'll even use EasyFind when looking for a file in a subfolder. But it is great to have an FAF. A good example: I needed to locate GoogleSoftwareUpdater somewhere on my hard drive. Where did they hide that little stinker that I couldn't delete when I removed Google Notifier? Aha! FAF found it in a few seconds. Bravo!
