10.5: Search system folders in Spotlight
Authored by: n1mie on Aug 24, '09 12:08:00PM

What I wonder is whether there is a way to search, or include in a search, the trash? What if you're looking for a file you misplaced that is in the trash waiting to be lost forever?

(shameless self-promotion)

You could use the program "Find Any File" - it can't search the contents of files, but it finds files by their name, date, etc, pretty fast, and all across your disk, even if root access is necessary (the app provides a "Search as root" mode).
