help with directories.
« on: February 06, 2009, 02:45:03 AM »
Hi. It's been a while since I used FARR and i'm having trouble getting folders to show up in my search results. Is there a special option I need to mess with or something to fix this?

Nope, they should be showing up just fine as long as they are either in your search folders or history. You could add '\' to your query to only display folders.

if you want to leave that disabled, add +\ to the end of any search to explicitly find matching folders instead of files.

I have the "show matching folders by default" option checked and the problem persists.

it seems when I removed the "optional file extension restrictions" from the directories I was focusing on the folders begin to pop up in my searches again. Is this a known issue with FARR?
