[Request] Excluding files under specific drive or directory only

Post by *marlar » 2020-01-06, 14:05 UTC

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
