    I installed SL 10a432. Transferred a lot of files to the share/dropbox. In swedish this is called:
    ~/Delad/Brevlådemapp/ which in English would translate to
    "~/Shared/Mailbox folder/" or something similar, it not related to emails, just the literal translation....

    what should I write in spotlight to reach this folder? i have tried loads of combination but I cannot find this folder in spotlight but I can find the items in it...

    if I write "dela" as in "Delad" it suggest "delat" like it would suggest share insted of shared when it in fact was called shared....

    I have no problems finding ~/Delad or ~/Delad/Brevlådemapp.

    Maybe you have added the shared folder to the ignore list in Spotlight prefs?
