    Question Finding files after migration
    Hi everybody!

    I've been searching information about this but it looks like nobody explained the solution to what happened to me.

    I migrated my files and apps from my old to my new MacBook Pro. All files and apps are there, some apps don't work anymore under Lion OSx, but that's no big deal for me.

    The big issue I have is that, all my files are in the hard drive and I can browse and open them from the finder window, but when I try to search for a file name with spotlight or the file search in finder, the files don't show up.

    Please if anybody had this problem and knows how to make the system "index" the files manually or how to set up the system so it finds them, advise!!

    Thank you!!

    Force Spotlight to re-index your hard disk in Mac OS X Lion | ITworld

    Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
