help using Finder...
very beginner here
attached my usual external HD to my brand new RMBP, I can see the files and open them, but if I look for a file (I am sure about the name!) it doesnt find anything...I am sure I checked "search in this MY PASSPORT" instead of THIS MAC
i am sure I am missing something...
thanks in advance
and btw it's NTFS formatted...

Check out the mdutil command in Terminal to turn indexing on or off and print indexing status.
Aldebaran:~ test$ mdutil Usage: mdutil -pEsa -i (on|off) volume ... Utility to manage Spotlight indexes. -p Publish metadata. -i (on|off) Turn indexing on or off. -E Erase and rebuild index. -s Print indexing status. -a Apply command to all volumes. -v Display verbose information. Aldebaran:~ test$ mdutil -vs /Volumes/LeopardFirewire /: Indexing enabled. Scan base time: 2013-05-04 05:56:55 +0200 (35487 seconds ago), reasoning: 'scan not required - avoided catchup scan'
mdutil -s /Volumes/MY\ PASSPORT mdutil -i on /Volumes/MY\ PASSPORT
