Post by Wazaz » Thu Mar 04, 2021 9:20 am

Hi !

I just downloaded Everything, and Im having trouble with it..

I would like to search every folders in a specific folder in which a certain type of file is missing

I tried something like this but it didn't worked

parent:D:\osu!\Songs !.osu

I want to find in my Songs folder every folders that don't have a .osu file in it

Any Idea ?

Thanks,

Please try the following search:

"d:\my songs folder\" !child:.osu folder:

where d:\my songs folder is your songs folder
! = NOT
child:<search> = match folders that contain a file with <search> in the filename.
folder: = limit results to folders only.

If you are not interested in subfolders, please try the following search:
parent:"d:\my songs folder" !child:.osu folder:


child:
