Search files with size criteria

Post by Bug locker » Sun Feb 21, 2021 11:31 pm

Hi.
Has everything the ability to search files or folders based on size criteria ?
e.g search C:\ for all files >200MB and <2000MB ?
or search C:\for all folders >500MB and <3000MB ?
Thanks. :)

Please try the size: search function.
e.g search C:\ for all files >200MB and <2000MB ?
Please try the following search:

c: size:>200mb size:<2000mb

-or-

c: size:200mb..2000mb


or search C:\for all folders >500MB and <3000MB ?
Please try the following search:

c: size:>500mb size:<3000mb

-or-

c: size:500mb..3000mb



Please try the Advanced Search from the Search menu to quickly and easily setup a size search range.

For foldrs too. For that to work well, you need to enable Index folder size ( under Menu:Tools > Options > Indexes)

EDIT:
If you only want to see folders in the result list, you can add folder: to your query, like this:

Code: Select all

folder:   C:   size:200mb..2000mb

Nice. It is a little complicated but it works.
Finally how i can a search with date criteria ? E.g to see the files or folders or both with the date range from 1/1/2021 to 22/1/2021 ?
It would be a good idea if all these criteria settings were made through a ready-made Graphics User Interface.
Thanks.

For example using
dm:2021-01-01..2021-01-22

(dm= date modified)
For more details (and a lot more options!), take a look at the Everything Search Syntax

There is: Menu:Search > Advanced Search ...
