How to search selected volumes (drives) ONLY

Post by thirl88 » Wed Oct 26, 2011 12:15 am

What do I have to do to find files on multiple selected drives (or volumes) rather than getting results from either just one drive or ALL my drives.

I can successfully get "Everything" to give me results from just one drive simply by typing...

"C:\" Whatever.mp3

But how would I get it to give results from a second chosen volume?

I expected to be able to do something like...

"C:\" "D:\" Whaterver*

but of course it now tries to find items called "D:\" on the C:\ drive.

I also tried C:\|D:\ and numerous other random variations with no luck! Also tried prefixing path: to the syntax.

Try the | (or) operator

C:\|D:\ Whatever
