indexing just some folders on a drive / exclude file extensions

Post by walterp » Wed Oct 17, 2018 12:41 pm

hi guys,
one of the best tools I've ever seen! :D

my questions are:
  • 1) I dont want to search in \windows or \old_documents for example.
    So, can I include/exclude some folders from the search?
  • 2) I would like to exclude some extensions from the general search option ('search all files'), e.g. the extension .lnk.
I would like to store these in general settings, so that these setting always take effect.

how can i do this?

thanks in advance
walterP
