    When I'm on finder and press ⌘+F and search for a file i find it 50% of the time Why? I have made sure I'm searching on my whole hard drive, i have made sure invisible files is on, system files is on, there is totally nothing that could go wrong, like lets say i search for xcodebashdshshsd and choose the options to see everything, i delete everything related to it, then i look in some library files etc. And i find 3 xcodebashdshshsd.plist for example. Same thing with easyfind.

    For some reason search in those Library files seems to be broken in Mavs even with show system files etc enabled. See my posts in this thread.

    I have been using the free app iFileX for file searches and it finds everything.
