Every now and then, I need to find the paths of certain files. For example, if I do a search for "*.py", I would like to see all the folders where these files are located. I'm not interested in the files themselves, just the folders. Currently, I have to sort them by location and then filter them externally. It would be nice if I can get a summary of all folders without the actual filenames.

You can export a unique list of folders using the sample transform:

C:\Program Files\Mythicsoft\FileLocator Pro\Sample Transforms\unique_folders_only.xsl

Steps:

  • Run the search
  • Click the menu option File -> Export Results...
  • Choose Custom (XSLT)
  • Browse (or paste in) the path to the Sample Transform unique_folders_only.xsl
  • Click Export
