Smart Folder Reader Request


Smart Folder

Yes, it’s true. Murphy answers reader requests. Details. This one is for donrodrigo in Italy.

But the news isn’t all good. While Smart Folders can be quite useful, they might not be exactly what you’re looking for. One shortcoming: You can’t do certain kinds of advanced searches using a simple “or” criteria. iPhoto and iTunes and Mail users might be used to capabilities they might not find in Smart Folders.

Murphy uses Smart Folders to find the biggest files on his disk. Things he should delete or archive. Click Watch Now to see the Snippet. Murphy is searching for movie files on his disk and running into some issues.
