Hi,

 

In Lion, is there a difference between searching for a file using SPOTLIGHT . . . or the SEARCH field in the upper left of a folder (if you click your Hard drive.)?

 

For example, I have a MacBook Pro with a 2nd hard drive inside.  If I don't "Spotlight" the 2nd hard drive - will the SEARCH field then still work?  Or if I DO SPOTLIGHT it - is it using the same search mechanism using "Find" and "Spotlight"?

 

I'm curious how this works?  Thanks very much,

 

Larry
