Syntax for date range

Post by burgundy » Sun Nov 25, 2018 11:22 pm

I want to find all jpeg files with a creation date between 1st January 2017 and 30th April 2017. However neither of these works:

dc:>01jan2017 dc:<30april2017 *.jpg

dc:>01jan2017 AND dc:<30april2017 *.jpg


Can someone kindly advise what the correct syntax should be.

Copied from VoidTools help page

Find files and folders created from the 1st August 2014 to 31st August 2014:

dc:1/8/2014-31/8/2014

or:

dc:8/1/2014-8/31/2014

Depending on your locale settings.

Using month names will work in the next version of Everything.

For now, you will need to specify the month as a number, eg:
dc:1/1/2017..30/4/2017 *.jpg

or, alternatively, iso8601 format:
dc:20170101..20170430 *.jpg

Does it have any effect if only .jpg is used instead of *.jpg?

Yes, .jpg searches for both files with jpg as extension and also names of files with .jpg in its name. (For e.g. It also lists something.jpg.part)
But *.jpg only search for files with jpg as extension.
