How with search string *.mp3.xml

Post by Kurt » Fri Dec 25, 2020 5:22 pm

So I have search string that looks like... *.mp3.xml

how can I get the results of that to also include the actual .mp3 that has that associated .xml
ie it would only show the xml file.. but I mainly want the mp3....

Dirk M - Signum Tribute 2012 - Vol 1.mp3
Dirk M - Signum Tribute 2012 - Vol 1.mp3.xml

is it possible? or would I need to use the api somehow?

It's a little tricky to do with Everything 1.4, please try the following:
  • Search for:
    *.mp3.xml
  • From the File menu, click Export...
  • Change Save as type to: EFU Everything File List.
  • Choose a filename and click Save (eg: mp3-xml.efu on the Desktop)
  • Open this mp3-xml.efu with notepad and replace (Ctrl + H) all occurrences of .mp3.xml with .mp3
    For example:
    c:\music\Dirk M - Signum Tribute 2012 - Vol 1.mp3.xml
    to:
    c:\music\Dirk M - Signum Tribute 2012 - Vol 1.mp3
  • In Everything, from the Search menu, click Advanced Search.
  • Scroll down to the bottom and to the right of Search for a list of file names click Browse...
  • Select your mp3-xml.efu from above.
  • Click OK.
    -Everything will now list all mp3 files that have a matching mp3.xml file in the same folder-
