Bridge Search is not finding my photos by Keywords

Hello,

I tag all my photos with keywords and usually use the Bridge Search function to find specific images  ("water", "portraits", etc).  But today, when I was trying to do a search, not all the photos that I know are tagged with a certain keyword were showing up, and some keywords even gave me no results. I may have deleted the cache trying to reset something? Please help!!!  Thank you.

Hi, thanks!
So, I need to open EVERY folder under the hard disk I use to store my
photos?

Hi minglessis,

 

Are you searching in the correct area with Bridge? Bridge can focus where you want to search and you might be too narrow. Try switching to Spotlight Search : Computer.

Bridge has issues with search sometimes. Open the folder and let the cache build and then try searching.

Hi G, but the Spotlight doesn't read keywords assigned in Bridge, does it?

I have always searched Bridge: computer but it stopped working. I the past I had the same issue and had to spent hours rebuilding the cache, if I remember correctly, but your idea is a better solution! Thanks a lot.
