Summary0005639: Full text search yields poor results when searching for Drive paths
DescriptionIf the user searches for C: or D: etc. MM returns tracks that contain C$ or D$ (where $ is a symbol or space) rather than what the user intended (in contrast, a search for C returns tracks containing any field beginning with a C).

This is due to the design decision to ignore characters for full-text search. The question to discuss is whether this is the right design.

Note that searching for "C:\" (the string needs to be quoted) finds all files on the C drive as requested here:

Right. The point of this bug is that users shouldn't be expected to know that they have put quotes around C: (especially if they've enabled search for the Path field).

Also, as pointed out by chris, it's unclear why search results for C: are different than for C:/ .

Rusty, I used similar approach like in case of issue 0005134.
If the search phrase contains ':' as _the_second_ character then the old MM 3.0 engine is used. This way searching for C: or C:\ works.

Fixed in build 1248.
