Default exlude list

Post by vurtikas » Sun Dec 19, 2010 3:40 am

I think the flash cookie directory [AppData\Roaming\Macromedia] should be excluded by default (for obvious reasons 8-) )

Is there a thread about a recommended blacklist? I haven't built a list yet, but most of appdata would be on it because I rarely ever want to find something in there, and the recycle bin folder. ThoughtS?

Don't know that there should be any default exclude.
(Kind of goes against the premise of finding Everything ;-).)

Perhaps a thread with suggestions.

Searching for ".sol" can be useful in cleaning up (or simply locating) Flash cookies.
Also helpful in finding that porn site that you've forgotten the name of.

The only locations I exclude are: E:\Documents and Settings\{user}\Recent & E:\WINDOWS\Prefetch.

True, I agree with you actually. The problem is the default is un-ticked for hiding results when the search is empty. And flash cookies are listed first because they start with '#'. Was a bit awkward when I installed it on someone else's computer...

I'll add those two to my exclude list. Other suggestions welcome people!
