How to search in current folder with HTTP query

Post by vahidsamimi » Wed Jan 08, 2020 10:14 am

Hi guys,

I want to search files/folder with the Everything HTTP server from a web browser.
I wrote this script but I want to search file/folders just in current directory

Code: Select all

http://localhost:8090/?search=+Stefan&offset=0&json=1&path_column=1&size_column=1&date_modified_column=1
As example:
Image
Im currently in c:\program files and I want to search just in this path.
How can I do that?

Thanks

Consider indexing only your C:\Program Files folder:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the NTFS tab on the left.
  • Select C:
  • Change Include only to: C:\Program Files
  • Click OK.
This will limit your HTTP clients to this folder only.


To limit the search to a specific path, include it in your search.
For the best results, wrap your path in double quotes and include a trailing backslash.

For example:
http://localhost:8090/?search="c%3A\program+files\"&offset=0&json=1&path_column=1&size_column=1&date_modified_column=1
