I've just turned on FireVault today so fear it might be the cause but, i'm not sure. Well, I use Spotlight religiously on a daily, hourly, maybe minute basis. I have a ton of organized folders under my Documents and when I search for any of those folders in spotlight no results are yielded. Not even if the whole folder is typed out, or even just partial. I tried typing in many different folder names I have but nothing. Then I tried typing in spotlight the names of Pages files, Excel Files, Word, etc...you name it. But nothing. I still get results sometimes but odd ones. I've included a photo to explain what I mean... ...But, if FireVault causing this? If so it would suck to have to choose between ease of use and security on my Mac. ..If not, then what is? Oh, and yes I checked the Spotlight Sys Pref. Pane. I've got Documents and Folders checked to appear.
