In one PST file I have a Search Folder that displays messages received within last 7 days. It was created via "New search folder" dialogs. So far so good.

How can I view all items (or at least email messages) received/created within the last 7 days in all PST files? If I click the search box above the view, choose "All Mailboxes" on the right, and then type "received:last week" or "received:last 7 days" or "received:last7days", the progress indicator animation starts moving, and it goes on "forever" with no results displayed.

Instant Search is the way to do it. Do any searches work as expected? It sounds like the index might need to be rebuilt.

if you want last 7 days, last week won't return the desired results in mid to late week
received:last week

I don't recall a 'last 7 days' search - you'll need to use dates.
Code:
received:3/13/2016..3/20/2016
received:(>3/13/2016)
