Include subfolders but exclude similar external folders?

Post by randy » Thu Feb 28, 2013 5:17 pm

I would like to search only c:\1 and subfolders, but exclude folders starting with "c:\1" which are not subfolders, such as c:\1A, c:\123, c:\1 XYZ, etc.

Searching the c:\1 folder is no problem, but I can't exclude the external folders.

I want this to be the default search, ie an Include/Exclude configuration, not something I need to type each time.

Any help appreciated!

All it takes is an Include c:\1\ (all folders, subfolders and files).
I neglected the backslash (\) after '1'
