Problem with include and exclude

Post by cracode » Wed Apr 07, 2010 1:44 pm

hi, I want to search only these files:
[1] exe files in C:\Program Files\ or D:\Program Files\ or D:\Tools\
[2] pdf,djvu,chm,txt,doc,docx,ppt,pptx,xls,xlsx,html,htm,mht,mhtml,avi,mp4,rmvb,mov,wmv,csf,exe,swf files in partition X:
[3] pdf,html,chm,txt files in E:\Dev\Docs
how should I set the exclude items to satisfy all the constraints above? and how to deal with the sequence of the rules?
I don't like to type ".pdf" or to use the filter toolbar to filter the search result list every time when I want to find a pdf file.
I have been confused with this for a long time. Can anyone give me a hand?

Please add the following exclude rules:
  • Click Add Filter.
  • Select Include.
  • Set the Filter to

    Code: Select all

    c:\program files\*\*.exe
  • Click OK.
  • Click Add Filter.
  • Select Include.
  • Set the Filter to

    Code: Select all

    d:\program files\*\*.exe
  • Click OK.
  • Click Add Filter.
  • Select Include.
  • Set the Filter to

    Code: Select all

    d:\tools\*\*.exe
  • Click OK.

For each ext on volume X you will need to add the following filter:
  • Click Add Filter.
  • Select Include.
  • Set the Filter to

    Code: Select all

    x:\*\*.ext
  • Click OK.
For each ext on volume E: you will need to add the following filter:

I set like this, but I finally got nothing but the four partition C: D: E: X: in the search result.

Unfortunately, there is a bug in 1.2.1.451a that prevents "Everything" from using full path wild card excludes.

The issue has been fixed for the next release of "Everything".

Thanks a lot.
Everything is the best search tool I have ever used. Now, waiting for new release...
