GNOME- Where are my files??

view story

http://forums.fedoraforum.org – When I search for a file through Activities nothing comes up. There are no files whatsoever displayed as a result of a search, also no folders beside the basic ones that come with the installation (eg. Documents, Videos, etc.). There is no list of recent files either. Is this how GNOME is supposed to run? :Y It doesn't seem very useful if we can only search for programs. Is there a setting I can tweak for this? I vaguely remember that in Fedora 16 I would get files inclued in my search results. (HowTos)
