Hi all, I searched the forum but didn’t see any posts about my problem.
EasyFind has been working perfectly for me up until a couple of days ago. Now, for some reason, it fails to return results for file contents in certain new folders. These folders are contained in the Dropbox folder on my MacBook, 5-6 folder levels deep. EasyFind has always returned perfect results for all other files in my Dropbox, some of which are just as deep, and continues to do so today. I tried a test of copying the relevant folders to my desktop and searching the file contents there, but I get the same outcome: zero results.
An example of my problem is the word “otter,” which I know for a fact appears numerous times in many of the 89 files in these folders, but “0 found/89 done” is the result. A search for “and” or “but” will find two or three files, but all of the 89 files in the affected folders undoubtedly have those words in them.
All of my settings are correct, the same as usual. I can’t figure out what is going on. Does anyone have any ideas? I don’t enjoy unresolved mysteries of this kind.
I certainly don’t mind having to pay for DEVONsphere Express (and perhaps I will have to), but EasyFind has always been perfectly adequate for my needs, and up until now has worked flawlessly for me.
