Setting up Search Criteria
To speed up your search and restrict files to those you are interested in, there
are a number of criteria you can set, namely path, file types, file size, date,
and scope. They are explained in detailed as follows:
You can type in path e.g. "c:\My Documents" manually, browse the folder or
choose template path from the drop-down list box. Template paths includes "My
Documents", "Desktop" and "My Favourites", the physical location will be added
if you click on it.
You can type in the file type to be searched in the field "File Type". For
searching all files, you can select "all files" or "*.*".
You can exclude a folder by checking "Exclude Path" in the main
After you click the "Exclude Path", a pop-up dialog appears. You can
browse any path you want to exclude by clicking [...] button and click [+]
to add into the list. For safety purpose, we suggest you to protect system
folders by checking "protect system folders" to exclude them.
To specify the range of file size to be searched, click "Define..." and
a dialog box would popup.
You can specify the minimum and maximum file size to include
in the search. For example, you can set minimum file size to 2KB to ignore
those small files as there are many which you don't interested in at all.
You can specify the range of file date in the searching criteria. Date
available to be selected are "Any","Last modified in last day", "last week", "last month and
last year". You can also specify a specific date to search for.
