Exclude a specific folder within a folder you want included?
« on: January 11, 2009, 11:34:20 PM »
In "My Documents" I have a folder full of PDF files that I have yet to properly rename after downloading them from JSTOR and other sites. I don't want FARR to search this folder, since it typically brings up a lot of things I don't want since they haven't been named properly yet. Is my only option to move this folder of unsorted PDFs into a folder that's not included in the FARR search? Or is there a way to search everything else in "My Documents" except this one folder?

Thanks,
Josh

@Josh83: this feature is built-in, you have to go to Farr's 'Options' and choose 'Search Folders' section and either add or edit an entry as per screenshot.

Thanks so much. I was playing with that earlier but couldn't figure it out. This screen shot makes it clear.

just a note you could have just typed "My Dropbox" in the exclusion list, the prefix of %MYDOCUMENTS% is not needed (in fact i have to go check to make sure it would work!)
