finding folders in a catalog search not seeming to work

Ive been using catalog search to find a folder a user deleted from their area. Using catalog search i can find their user folder by inputting the resource\path in and adding their named folder ie,

file\item name: 08seno01

path: homes\students\2008\

resource: \\nas01\\\nas01\E::

This brings up dozens of results from the last few months as i would expect, however i need to find a folder inside 08seno01 so i move that to path and add the name of the folder i need to find inside that..

file\item name: ict

path: homes\students\2008\08seno01\

resource: \\nas01\\\nas01\E::

however this returns nothing... I know for a 100% fact this folder is there and spelt correctly as it shows in the backups and thats the one i need to find.

Please can anyone let me know what im doing wrong or if what i want to do is even possible?

Hello James,

Please try to use it with wild card eg. *foldername*. Hope this will help.

As per the screenshot it seems the search is still running as the stop button is still active and all others are greyed out. Please wait for the search to finish.

Sorry i pasted the wrong screen grab i took during the search, but it did actually finish with no results. That result took 15 mins of searching too
