[Request] Excluding files under specific drive or directory only

Post by marlar »

In the ignore list you can add specific files or directories to exclude from the file list.

But sometimes you need to exclude files under certain paths only. For example, I want to exclude *.metathumb in the WD TV Live directory on my NAS only, but not on my main drive.

This is not working:

z:\multimedia\*\*.metathumb

What I would like is to have *.metathumb excluded anywhere under z:\multimedia\ eg:

z:\multimedia\movie1.metathumb
z:\multimedia\action\movie2.metathumb
z:\multimedia\sci-fi\movie3.metathumb

I would suggest using the linux convention where * can match anything but not across directories and ** can match across directories.

So the path would be:

z:\multimedia\**\*.metathumb
