How to omit folder name which may be in multiple places

Post by RobWright » Thu Jun 20, 2019 9:38 am

Hello,
I am new to using 'Everything' and so far I am finding it just great!
We are using it to make sure we comply with GDPR and we have a folder called PERM in multiple locations that we want the tool to exclude during it's searching as documents inside here we wish to keep.
How can I omit this folder name please as everything I have tried thus far does not work.
Thank you

Rob

To exclude all folders called PERM:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Exclude tab on the left.
  • Click Add Filter....
  • Type in the following filter and click OK:
    PERM
  • Click OK.

Tried various Regex expressions with and without the ! for the NOT option.
