Letter L + space - Windows 7 bug

By infradium ·
Last week while we were trying to solve a problem presented by a user we found ourselves in this situation.

When we tried to do a fast search (using the search bar located in the folder windows, (Win 7) we found that all the files that started with the letter L and a space were not included in the results of the search.

For example, the user has a folder were the files names are set this way: L 20887, L 25321, L 54851. Trying a search looking for a file through the identifying number (Eg: 20887) the search result doesn’t show any files. If we change the L for any other letter (we tried them all) and do the same search the result is correct.

We thought it might be a problem with the fileserver where those files are allocated but when we tried the same locally we found practically the same result with a small difference: The search results don’t highlight the file that start with L but it shows at the end of the search list. If there’s only one file in the folder starting with L and followed by a space and numbers the search result doesn’t show any files.

Thank you.
