Find Files - Exclude

#1 Find Files - Exclude

Posted by: joemarfice | Date: 2020-03-29 20:36 | IP: IP Logged

I was able to figure out how to exclude files matching a pattern, by using the Add current button. I expected "*.zip" to exclude all zip files, but instead it's "file:*.zip". OK. Got it.

But I still can't figure out how to exclude folders matching "Archive". "*\Archive\" won't exclude them, for some reason.

Ideally, I'd like to exclude only folders exactly matching that - so "D:\Folder\Archive\" would be excluded, but "D:\Folder\Archive Settings" would not be excluded.

What's the correct formula to exclude folders?

Never mind, I'm an idiot.

It's XYCopy that's giving me problems... a program I like almost as much as PSPad.

Thanks.
