    Several times each week under Vista, I would search 4 of 16 folders under a master data folder for all files that were modified in those 4 folders on one specific day. This was an easy one-step operation using Vista's Advanced Search capability. I selected the four folders with the Browse option, specified the date, and chose File modified. Despite glowing reviews of Win 7's search capabilities, I have found no equivalent one-step operation to do the same thing. Is it possible?

    I can search from the master folder, but then I get changed files in all 16 subfolders and hundreds of hits I don't want. Or I can search the four folders of interest separately by doing four times as much work. Any suggestions?
