I don't know why, but I'm having real grief with Spotlight; I'm running 10.5.8 on an iMac. This has been a semi-recent development - all was fine until about a month ago but it's become increasingly noticeable to the point where I'm writing this. If I open a window where I can see the file I want to find, then open a new Finder window and type the name of it next to the magnifying glass at the top of the window, it doesn't find it (with File Name OR Contents selected - using This Mac as the search drive). Pressing CMD-F and entering the relevant specifics won't locate it either, neither will CMD-Space Spotlight. It seems to be more prevalent when searching for folders rather than single files... I've repaired the disk and repaired the permissions in Disk Utility but I just don't know - any ideas. Thanks.
