How do I search a specific list of files?

0 votes

I have a list of files in a text file that I would like to search, e.g. my text file looks like this:

\\Server\Folder\Info.txt
\\Server2\Folder\Archive.txt
\\Server3\OtherFolder\Backup.txt

Is it possible to tell FileLocator Pro to search just the files in that list?

Yes, you can specify the list in the Look In field by prefixing the name with an equal sign, e.g.

Look In: =C:\LoadList.txt

FileLocator Pro will then load the text file and search each location specified in the list. Each location in the list can be either a specific file, as you require, or a folder.

You could also perform the search by concatenating the list into the Look In field, e.g.

Look In: \\Server\Folder\Info.txt;\\Server2\Folder\Archive.txt;\\Server3\OtherFolder\Backup.txt
