How to exclude specific folders when searching?

Post by eswul62 » Fri Oct 03, 2014 8:50 am

I would like to exclude specific folders from the search results.

e.g.
search for : some textstring

folders to be excluded:
x:\doc
y:\other doc
z:\last folder

Any suggestions?

thanks

Thanks a lot!

I did look at http://www.voidtools.com/support/everything/searching/
and noticed the ! parameter, but wasn't sure though.
e.g. grouping/not grouping
(also went on to try nopath:)

Ai!
just noticed the examples at the bottom, under examples... :oops:
(Limit the search to a single folder)

ahum.
