would it be possible to have farr search withing a specific area of the hard drive that it isn't normally set to do by typing in a quick keyword (or specific path).
other quick keyword search locations would be set by the user for whatever they though appropriate 'music', 'videos', 'program files, etc. etc.
i appreciate that there would have to be another element for the trigger to work so that it isn't confused with a more basic search action - like simple searching for a file named 'mydocs' that is in the start menu.
Why not use \ , since it cannot be in a filename?
\ starts FRR searching for directories rather than files (how much faster would that be?) and when one is selected, restricts further search to its contents?
I don't know - I don't want it to have to index the whole file system, just in case, but it would be nice to be able to make a working directory visible or invisible on the fly.
The program says I can drag and drop folders from the file manager onto the "search folders" pane, but it doesn't work!
I've tried putting shortcuts to folders on the desktop, but that doesn't work either.
BTW, you can't select files those names start with a number, for obvious reasons
