[Solved] Limit Searching to a Particular Drive

Post by skeezix » Tue Jan 22, 2019 10:08 pm

When I open Everything, I get everything. Most of the time I only want to see what's on the D: drive, but sometimes I want to see everything on C: and D:.
Using the graphic interface and not the command prompt, how can I get Everything to only search one drive?

Make a filter.
Search | Add to filters (or Organize)

Give it a somewhat meaningful name, C_DRIVE, perhaps.
Search field: C:
...


With <C: | D:>, you'll probably want to put it in angle-brackets.
