Search all folders with Find
Authored by: John Derwent on Nov 24, '04 12:10:33PM

"Find" in the Finder does not automatically search the folder System. You can make it do so and also find invisible files as follows.
After clicking on Find, in the "Search in" box choose "Specific Places," and then "Add", and then navigate to and choose the folder System.
Next, in the "Search for items whose:" box, click on the + sign to add another search criterion. Set it to "Visibility" in the first box and "visible and invisible items" in the second box.
