  • Compare only select folder and sub-folder

    I want to compare the contensts of a folder and one sub-folder. In the filters section I have

    Include folders fileter
    .\docs
    .\docs\tech2006

    Exclude folders filter
    .\docs\*

    The exclude seems to be preventing the display of the folder "docs\tech2006". If I ommit the exclude folders filter then I see all sub-folders for "docs"

    Is there a way of seeing only one sub-folder.

    If you are loading a base folder that contains \docs\tech2006\, here's how to only display that folder:

    Include Files: *.*
    Exclude Files: .\*
    Include folders: .\docs\tech2006

    In the Filters: toolbar this will show as: -.\*;.\docs\tech2006\

      Re: Compare only select folder and sub-folder

      The filters I currently have are

      Include files Exclude files
      *.* .\*.*

      Include folders Exclude folders
      .\dl .\dl\*
      .\winvn .\hr\*
      .\Parking .\docs\*
      .\MedStVfp9MultiSite
      .\docs\Tech2006
      .\docs
      .\Test ET Transactions
      .\HR

      It appears that ".\docs\*" prevents the folder "docs\tech2006" from being displayed. If I remove the ".docs\*" I get it and all other sub-folders of folder "docs".

      What am I doing wrong, or is what I am trying to do not possible.

        If you only want to see the docs\tech2006\ folder, then paste -.\*;.\docs\tech2006\ directly into your Filters: toolbar.

        If you want to see files in \docs\ and in \docs\tech2006\, but not in other docs subfolders like \docs\foo\, use the filter ".\docs\*;-.\*;.\docs\tech2006\" in your Filter: toolbar.

        If that still isn't doing what you want, please paste the condensed form of the filter from your Filters: toolbar, and list the files and folders that you want displayed.
