Would love to be able to search with syntax like:

base/*/.txt; !base/foo

(search all txt files below base/, but exclude the base/foo folder and all of its sub-folders)

As you're probably aware you can achieve what you want in FileLocator Pro with:

File name:      *.txt
Containing Text: 
Look In:         C:\Base;!C:\Base\foo

The Look In field does support expressions, e.g. to search within only ZIP files in the Base folder

Look In:         C:\Base\*.zip

However, this only works for file types that are container types, such as ZIP, RAR, PST etc. I'll add your request to the Issue Tracker.
