I'm trying to find folders that contain the string
That's the 3 letters G, E, and N, followed by 7 spaces, then a left parenthesis.
"GEN (" *GEN (* kind:=folder "GEN (" kind:=folder *GEN (* kind:=folder *"GEN ("*
and a number of more basic, generic syntaxes and what is consistently returned are folders with the word "general" in them (or nothing at all in some cases).
It's as if multiple spaces are just crunched to a single space.
I'm searching a network share if that matters...
I have never understood Microsoft's implementation of search. Back in XP and 7 I could search the exact name of a file that I'm staring at and Explorer would be like, "nope, don't see it."
