found a bug

Post by ben303 » Fri Nov 04, 2011 1:58 pm

HI

I found a bug


under your options->exclude

if I exclude a folder, simply with the name 'd' (its a backup of my d drive)

like this:

H:\d


it also exludes my folder

H:\downloads

so I am guessing it exludes all paths with "H:/d" in the string?

is this by design or a bug?

cheers

Ben

Try excluding the full path and file name to the folder you wish to exclude, for example:

Code: Select all

H:\d
Otherwise, "Everything" will treat it as a wild card search.

I did exaclty that - it still was treated like a wildcard search

Use double quotes around H:\d

Code: Select all

"H:\d"
The issue has been fixed for the next release.

You might like to test this now with the latest alpha release.
