guys, i have a question re spotlight. A lot of people say that it is way better than the windows search function. I can appreciate that it starts to look for files the second I start typing. However, i tried to search for a certain word document whose file name I forgot and so I just typed a uncommon word which is unique to the just a few word documents in my ext. hard disk. However, my search ended up with nothing. does this trick work with spotlight. I got used to this way of searching with Windows search kasi since my document folders are so disarranged (my fault). i tinkered with the settings of spotlight and saw that the choices available was with which types of files spotlight first searches or prioritezes. Sadly, I ended up using windows in bootcamp to search for the file and finally found it.
