I am using CS4 in a Mac. Due to lack of space, I transferred all the Pictures folders into a Lacie external hard drive. Now I can search the Lacie with Bridge and find and open any of the Pictures folders. But when I try to search by keyword, they are Not Found. How do I do that?
You will have to re-index all the files before the search will work.
I would purge the existing cache and then do a search at the top folder. Select "Include Non-Indexed Files" at the bottom of Find window.
All the files will be indexed, but it will take awhile. Start this when you quit working on computer for awhile.
Hope this solves problem.
How do you search an external drive with Bridge? I'm trying to do that and cannot figure out how.
