    I'm on 10.11.1 and suddenly today finder search has stopped working. If I do a spotlight search everything shows up but if I click "show all in finder" it's blank. If I open a folder either on the internal drive or external I can see a file named "1250", I search within that folder for "1250" and it's blank. Other times I search for a file it just shows me everything in that folder. It's maddening.

    So far I've started to re-index every drive inside and out (still going, probably going to take hours) and deleted my finder preferences, restarted, same issues.

    Any tips welcome thanks ahead of time.

    I did a screen capture of the issue so it helps make sense. I completed my reindexing, restarted and still same issues
