how can I exclude files with NO extension?

Post by manu » Sun Jan 17, 2021 1:23 am

e.g. firefox cache files such as "B01839EC00CA24E2D38F07A02A44BFA973017AEB", they have no extension and I could find no way of excluding them.

thanks!

!ext:

Null extension.
!\cache2\

Or simply exclude Mozilla's /cache2/ directory.
