How to Search only a particular drive

Post by jmfleming » Wed Jan 23, 2019 4:03 pm

Big thumbs up for Search Everything!

To my question... My home computer has a second hard drive to clone/backup data. Search Everything is installed on this computer and when I search, it will only give me the results from my primary drive, the C drive, which is what I want.

On my office computer I have the same setup, a second drive to clone/backup data. I downloaded Search Everything, and the search results include the data on the backup drive as well as the C drive. I want only the C drive results. I have attempted to match the settings to that of the SE app on my home computer but it still searches both drives.

What settings in SE do I need in order to limit my searches to a particular drive?

By the way, I know I can type C:\, but surely this is an unnecessary step (I hope).

Thank you!

Well, I now noticed the same question was asked just down the list.

I have it working okay by organizing the list - putting the C:\ filter I created to the top of the list. This is the same thing I thought I had tried earlier. Now it works. So I'm happy. Thanks.
