Is it possible to add labels to DVDs?

Post by AlexEverything » Tue Apr 09, 2019 3:14 pm

I read the post (viewtopic.php?t=6393) but I didn't find the answer to my need.
Problem:
In my PC the DVD is marked with E.
I have a lot of DVDs and when I add the list of files for each one, Everything adds them to the archive, but then when I do a search it does not allow to distinguish which DVD contains the indicated file.
Question:
Is it possible to add a label to each file on each DVD?

Currently:
MyPhoto_01.JPG path: E:
MyPhoto_45.jpg path: E: Photos

How I wish:
MyPhoto_01.JPG path: DVD011 E:
MyPhoto_45.jpg path: DVD058 E: Photos

After you added your DVD's as file lists to Everything (using the instructions provided in the thread you mentioned), you can use the filelistfilename: function.

Example:

Code: Select all

MyPhoto_01.JPG filelistfilename:DVD011
- or - 
MyPhoto_01.JPG filelistfilename:DVD011.efu
If you want to see a list of all your DVD's and their content, you can search for
filelistfilename:.



You can add the File List Filename column to your result list by right-clicking the header of the resultlist and selecting File List Filename.
