    I set up a smart folder to display all files that are > 1gb and it is not displaying all files that meet this criteria. I have two files that are over 15gb and only one is being displayed. Does anyone know why this would happen?

    Any solution to this? I'm experiencing a similar thing under Mavericks. Created a smart folder to find files larger than 100MB, but several I know exist (.mov files) are not showing up.

    There's a caveat I'm trying to figure out though. My 500GB flash was just filled up, so I'm having to delete files. I'm wondering if since the drive was full, that the OS couldn't properly (re)index recent files that meet the smart folder criteria? We'll see. I do know that strange things happen when an OS drive is completely full. Any input is appreciated.

    So by either clearing up drive space and/or restarting my machine, smart folders are showing files that meet criteria.
