searching full paths of files?

Post by yaruk » Mon Sep 13, 2010 5:40 pm

is it possible to search full paths? i.e. a path that includes

e.g. it looks like when entering a string, Everything lists directory paths matching, and filenames matching.

But, suppose one has a file you want to look for, and you know a bit about its directory path, and a bit about its filename.
and you want to search e.g.

a file is within c:\documents and settings\terry
but there are loads of files there.

and the filename ends in RTF (and suppose there are many files on the hard drive that end in RTF)

but there aren't many files within "terry", that end in RTF. So it'd be very useful to specify that it's within terry, and ends in RTF. Rather than a second best route, of specifying that it ends in RTF and then looking through ..
