Search - How to return results from 2 identical folders

Recommended Posts

I have 2 identical folders, one backup of the other. When I perform a search for files, it returns only files from the second (backup) folder.
Is there a way to prioritize search firstly in the original folder and secondly in the backup folder?
Thank you!

Alfred prioritises files/folders on a newest-file-first basis, so Alfred probably considers the backup the priority folder.


You might consider adding the backup folder to Spotlight's Privacy list in System Preferences. That should exclude it entirely.
