Find folders that contain video files but missing jpg files

Post by slayerist » Mon Apr 15, 2019 2:23 pm

Hello all,

I am trying to find a way out but can't do at all.

What i would like to achieve is search my hard drive's folders that do contain video files and a jpg file missing within the folder.
folder/abc.mkv or abc.mp4 but jpg file is not present in that folder

Plus i would love to see this result as files (mp4, mkv etc) so that i could drag and drop them into another folder.

Thanks in advanced

Try it with:

Code: Select all

child:.avi|child:.mpg|child:.mkv    !child:.jpg   !child:.gif
Explanation:
child:.avi = search for folders that contain a .avi file (or fodler)
| = OR
! = NOT

Altogether: Search for folders that contain a .AVI, .MPG or .MKV file AND do not have a .JPG or .GIF file in them.

That will give you a list of folders. Double-clicking on of those folders will open it in Explorer.
(AFAIK it's not possible to list the content of the folders in Everything this way.)
