Isolate file and directory

Post by tcebob » Wed Jul 24, 2019 12:58 pm

I have backups on an external drive. Each backup is in a separate directory. How can I search for a specific file type in one of the directories? For example, I want to find all abc$.exe in X\Dir4, where $ is a wild card

Code: Select all

X\Dir4   wfn:abc?.exe
Assuming abc$.exe isn't the real filename and the real one might include spaces in it's name, replace wfn:abc?.exe with wfn:"Name with sp?ces.exe"

You can find what this all means - and a lot more - on the Searching help page

Good luck!
