I have Folder called Pictures where all the Pictures I made are stored, Pictures of other sources are store at a diffrent place, on the hard disk. All Folders are in the lightroom database. 
Before Version 7.0 the Smart Collection with "Folder starts with Picture" only locked in the proper Folder and found Pictures. In Version 7.0 this doesen't work anymore :(
The Folder isn't renamed and didn't contain any spaces.

Thanks for reporting it. We could reproduce this issue.
A fix is underway.

A workaround is to use "contains words", "contains", or "contains all" (adjusting the search string as necessary).  They appear to work correctly.

But it wants to republish all the photos, and that could take days if it is uploading to Flikr for example.

Sunil, any idea on how long this simple fix will take? It should be relatively easy to fix.

I haven't been able to publish anything since Classic came out as I don't want to use the work around as it will mean republishing 1000s of images and take days or weeks to do.

I have this issue as well, and ALL of my catalogs use this convention for organization. PLEASE fix this so I can start using this program again.

Still no fix for this? All of my smart collections are still broken, and my workflows relies on this functionality!

I have the same problem and like Ed smart collections are a critical part of my workflow. Spending several hours changing Starts With to Contains and then having to change them back later is not the solution I am looking for.
