Finder "Search" isn't searching anymore in ~/Library/Preferences !!!

I don't know what happened but I used to have a saved search in Finder sidebar that searched in All HDD for All files, system and invisible included. I used it for complete uninstalling of programs and for being sure to have a very clean Mac.

Now, if I want to delete .plist files related to one program I have to enter that directory and search directly inside it, searching All HDD searches everywhere but that folder….! I'm going crazy.


I tried:

  • reindexing HDD
  • delete
  • repair permissions


Using a program like "Easyfind" I can find everything as usual, but I don't want external programs for doing something Finder could perfectly do before!
