Windows 7: Sticky Fingers ... How to Find Specific Folder in Win7

Sticky Fingers ... How to Find Specific Folder in Win7

My fingers were sticky and I accidentally moved a folder, however, I don't know where I put it.

I was looking @ a tree-view of my drives so I could have dragged the folder just about anywhere, however, I'm pretty sure--not certain, but highly confident--thatI dropped in @ a location that is contained in one of my libraries, that's the good news.

Now for the bad news: The name of the folder is rather common and I suspect that I have a couple of hundred folders with this name.

I admit it--I don't really understand Windows Search--it never seems to give me what I want, much less what I expect.

I'm hoping that with the vast number of Date related fields in the Choose Details window (Date accessed, Date acquired, Date archived, Date completed, Date created, ...) one of them will be updated whenever a folder is moved from location A to location B--but, you know what they say about "hope."

Bottom Line--here's my request--
How do I search for a folder with a name of, say, "XYZ"?
Is there any way I can make my search CaSe SpecIfic?

Try searching for a file that's in the MIA folder.
