Match path&Enable Regex

Post by ringtail » Sat Jan 21, 2012 1:25 pm

Hi,
My OS is Win 7 and the version of Everything is 1.2.1.371.
Now, I find that it doesn't work if I enable regex and my search contents contain path seperator '\' .
For example, when I enable regex and search "c:\program files\", I get nothing.
But if I cancel the regex, the result is normal and shows all files and folders in this folder.
What's the problem?
Any suggestion is appreciated.
Thanks

Since the backslash is an escape character in regex try doubling the backslashes.

i.e. C:\\program Files\\

Hi Scott,
thanks for your reply. I have tried to double the backslashes, but it still doesn't work.
