File Selection

 

Supports command dialog, extended wildcards, and multiple file names. Date, time, size or exclude ranges anywhere on the line apply to all source files. Use wildcards with caution on LFN volumes; see LFN File Searches for details.

 

Usage

 

Search for files and/or directories on local NTFS drives using "Everything Search" (http://www.voidtools.com). EVERYTHING by default does a wildcard search equivalent to "*filename*", and outputs the full pathname of all matching files and/or directories.

 

You need to install Everything Search and index your local NTFS drives before using EVERYTHING.

 

Options

 

/CFilename matching is case sensitive

 

/DOnly search for directories

 

/EDisplay the Everything Search dialog. You can combine /E with the other EVERYTHING options (except /D and /F).

 

/FOnly search for files

 

/M=nOnly return a maximum of n files / directories.

 

/ODisplay the Everything options dialog.

 

/PMatch path names.

 

/Rfilename is a regular expression (EVERYTHING will automatically set the regular expression flag if the filename begins with ::)

 

/SSort results by path, then by file name. (This can take several seconds with a large number of search results.)

 

/WMatch whole word
