filelistfilename:<name>

Code: Select all

filelistfilename:<name>   Search for files and folders belonging to the file list filename.

Could you explain that?

<name> is a file containing...
the full path+filename of the files wanted to search for
one name per line?


So, filelistfilename:C:\DEV\list\Copy of list.txt
would read the file names contained in 'Copy of list.txt', searching for them?

filelistfilename searches for files and folders already in your Everything index that belong to filelists.

The search compares against the file list filename.

For example, if you have indexed the following filelists:
C:\filelists\CD01.efu
C:\filelists\CD02.efu
C:\filelists\CD03.efu
C:\filelists\CD04.efu

Searching for filelistfilename:CD02.efu will show all the files/folders belonging to the indexed filelist c:\filelists\CD02.efu

It seems you need to add another column in help: Name, Discription, Example
Not need for each, but for those been already asked about.

That's a good idea, I should also make Everything highlight the matched text in the file list filename column... Added to my TODO list.
