Ok, last time this question was put to wasteland. Because the question wasn't clear. So let me try again.... I created a folder on the hard disk called: martin I then went to File then Find (apple F) The Find window opens Search in: EVERYWHERE Search for items whose: NAME IS martin I clicked search...... Search Results for "martin" in "Macintosh HD" 0 items! Repeated the search changed the IS to CONTAINS...still 0 items? Where am I or the powerbook running OS X 10.3.5 going wrong? Hmmm..then I did a search for: m Two items was the result?
