Your search problem is a very common mistake. Basically as it stands you're instructing FileLocator Pro to look for
.rar files and not
.pdf files inside ZIP files.
When compressed file types are switched ON FileLocator Pro treats the compressed files, e.g. ZIP files, as sub folders within the folder. So if you just want to search for PDF files then you specify it just as you would if you were searching a normal folder, e.g.
File name: *.pdf
Look in: C:\MyArchives
FileLocator Pro will search though the zip files as if they are subfolders of their parent directory.
If you wish to limit which ZIP files are searched you specify that using the Look In field, again just as you would if you wanted to limit a search to the sub folder of a parent folder. So, for example, to search inside ONLY zip files you would use a location filter like this:
The location filter
+.zip basically says 'Only search paths with .zip in them'. If you wanted to expand the search to include RAR files you'd change the filter to be a Boolean expression and combine the two, e.g.
Look In: C:\MyArchives;+:bool:.zip OR .rar
If you just wanted to search inside a single zip file you would put the whole path in the Look In field, e.g.
Look In: C:\MyArchives\Docs2012.zip
Note: The different compressed file types can be switched on in the Compressed Files tab, e.g. to switch ON zip searching check the ZIP box
