I have an index with folders included (ie. the 'Include all other folders using name only' is checked), how do I restrict searches to only folder names?

To limit the search to JUST folders use:


You can then combine that with the name search, e.g. to search for folders beginning with the text 'archive'

ext:|folder| name:archive

If you don't know the start of the name use the wildcard character, e.g.

ext:|folder| name:*archive

Note: You could perform the folder name search without the 'name' prefix but it would be slightly slower.
