I have enabled Spotlight in Preferences for Folders, yet when I try to find a folder, Spotlight doesn't work at all. Any thoughts?

Is this folder(s) you are looking for on a shared server? Using 10.7.2/3 I am unable to search certain shared server formats (NAS, SMB). Try a program called easy find. Works like a champ for us.

No - Folders like Media Core in the Library. Perhaps those are protected from search?

Thanks for the Easy Find idea - I will try it!
