How search for a file that contains (3) in the title?

Posted: 12-28-2008, 10:05 PM
I am trying to locate files that have (3) in their title. But when I search
for (3) in the search bar, it returns any files that have 3 in the title, and
ignores the parantheses.

I tried quotes, but that returned nothing.

Just to be clear, I want this search to find a file named "Johnson file (3)"
but NOT a file named "123 Main St."
