The joys of the forums probably running on a system that is case sensitive I guess...

That's exactly it.

 

"SMR" won't get you any results, but "Shingled" will.

Yes, search has always been "lame" with this software. I remember a setting where it wouldn't even allow 3 letter word search. So basically it's not even a valid search.  I'll dig around and see what I can do.

I rebuilt the index.  SMR hard drive search kinda worked.
