Why doesn't ffind find directory?

Would someone please explain why "ffind Files" below doesn't find anything?


Volume in drive C is unlabeled      Serial number is 2af5:c418
Directory of  C:\Junk\*

3/14/2014   5:04p        <DIR>    Files
                 0 bytes in 0 files and 1 dir
   185,415,905,280 bytes free

C:\Junk>ffind  Files

      0 files

C:\Junk>ffind  File*

      1 file

C:\Junk>ffind  Files*

      1 file

Because, with that syntax, FFIND looks for things **inside** the "Files" directory (and apparently, that directory is empty).
Because there are no files in the directory you specify?

A better question, I think, would be why FFILES does match the directory in the latter two. I suspect the answer is that, since there's a wildcard, FFILES 'knows' that you aren't specifying a search location.
