At one time I was going ot share an External with my wife and her PC. I have decided it is easier to just have my own Ex HD. I need one big enough for Podcasts and the occasional Document for Grad School.
I know where most of my files are at that I want to move to my Ex HD but how do I find the ones I'd like to move but aren't sure where Mac saved them? For example all my podcasts. I'm not sure where Mac puts them. As far as I know there is no "search" feature as their is in Window$.

A veteran is someone who, at one point in his/her life, wrote a blank check made payable to "The United States of America," for an amount of "up to and including my life."

You can use the search field in Finder (top right) or the system wide search from Spotlight (the magnifying glass in the top right corner of the tool bar).
