Include excluded path

Post by numaniko » Wed Apr 15, 2020 11:12 am

Hello dear Everything users..

Apologies if this already addressed but I could not find any subject for my question at least from 20 mins searching.

The question is I added network drive as folder and I can do search in it without any issue. But I dont want to see results from network drive always. I tried to exclude the path from options->Exclude menu but now I can not do search on network drive by typing "asd.jpg Z:" In there any way to overwrite exclusion and include excluded folder / path just using special character? Or is there any way to achieve exclude a folder from daily search and just include once needed?

Thanks.

To add a search filter to ignore your network drives:
  • In Everything, from the Search menu, click Add to filters
  • Change Name to: Local only
  • Change Search to: !z: !h: !j:
    where Z:, H: and J: drives are your network drives.
  • Click OK.
Filters can be activated from the Search menu, Filter bar (View -> Filters), right clicking the status bar, filter macro or filter keyboard shortcut.
