Smart Folders excluding backup disk  



I may be too close to this problem but I can't figure this out. 

Is there a way to create a Smart folder which contains all the pdfs on an internal drive only? I created a smart folder but it contains all the pdfs on my attached backup disk as well. I'd like to see if it is possible to exclude certain devices. I couldn't find that option, but I'm hoping I'm just missing it.

By default, I think it will search "This Mac", instead, go to the root of your startup drive, and launch the search from there, you'll have the option to search "This Mac", "Dan's HD" (or whatever the name of you drive is), select your drive and the rest of your criterias and you should be good.


I knew I was too close to the problem. That was exactly what I needed. Thanks for the help.
