    or just:

    and make sure you are searching from the root of the drive eg C: or D:

    Alternatively you can open up Command Prompt and type:
    cd c:\

    and then:
    dir /s *10.20*.pdf

    dir /s *10.20.pdf

    or if you want your search result to be put in a text file:
    dir /s *10.20*.pdf > C:\result.txt
