    I am having trouble finding a folder on my macbook that I am 100% positive that it is on my computer but when I enter the folder name in the finder it will not come up. It was a folder that was buried in one folder and then oyu had to open another folder and then another one and so on. It is buried but like I said I know for a fact it is there, somewhere. Any other ideas as to finding it?

    Press command+f in the finder, and you can refine your search to just look for folders. Might help a bit.

    well I ended up finding it but for some reason it still wont come up in the finder even when I do use command f. Very weird. Thanks for the quick response though.

    How long ago did you create it? Could be that it was not indexed, or did you place the file in with system files because you would have to do a special search to find it if that is the case.

    Sounds like you need to rebuild your Spotlight index.
