OR search with folders and files only showing files

Post by JTCGiants56 » Sat Dec 29, 2018 11:00 pm

I'm trying to create an OR search with folders and files. But the results only show the files but not the folder (__MACOSX).

Code: Select all

.ds_store|tn* .jpg|tnap* .jpg|__MACOSX
Any help is appreciated

OR has higher precedence, so Everything sees your search as:

(.ds_store|tn*) AND (.jpg|tnap*) AND (.jpg|__MACOSX)

Please try searching for:
.ds_store|<tn* .jpg>|<tnap* .jpg>|__MACOSX

< and > = grouping.
