Search for NOT directories

Post by *bamisalami » 2019-09-14, 20:12 UTC

Hello,

I have a large movies directory. Subdirectories are named Movie (720p)(year) or Movie (1080p)(year) or Movie (year). The latter being the SD versions of the movies.

I would like to find all directories that do NOT contain 720p or 1080p.

When I go to commands/search/find text and enter 720p, it doesn't work: it doesn't find directories, only files.

How could I solve this problem?

Thank you,

Bye,

In General tab search for *.*|*720p*.*; *1080p*.*, in Advanced tab check Directory then start searching

"Find text" is for searching inside the files - you must use the "Search for" field, to search for file/dir name patterns - as ts4242 also writes.
