Are their fields in the GUI that would enable me to search without regular expressions for a path containing both of those strings?
A space in Everything means AND.
Please try the following search:
Everything Search Syntax (Help -> Search Syntax)
If the order is important, please try the following search:
* = match any character, any number of times.
Note: when using * the whole filename is matched. (use a leading and trailing *)
if I wanted to use my regex, what field would I put it in?
In the search box and prefix your search with regex:
Note: don't forget to escape white spaces and | with double quotes.
Please try the Advanced Search under the Search menu to help learn the Everything syntax.
There is a regex field in the Advanced Search.
Could you help me do a command line search, using a regex?
"E:\Apps\Everything\ES-184.108.40.206\es.exe" -path "C:\Program Files" -regex "^Everything" /ad -export-efu "E:\Apps\Everything\EFU_files\2021-08-03_18-16-11_Regex_path_strings_UNconnected.efu"
where "C:\Program Files" is the path of interest
and where "^Everything" is your regex search.
Please use -path <directory> instead of -parent-path <directory> (-parent-path will strip off the last path part)
The regex search must appear immediately after -regex
-path <directory> and -regex <search> can appear in any order
If you wish to use the standard Everything syntax to mix with regex, please try the following search
"E:\Apps\Everything\ES-220.127.116.11\es.exe" "C:\Program Files\" regex:"^Everything" /ad -export-efu "E:\Apps\Everything\EFU_files\2021-08-03_18-16-11_Regex_path_strings_UNconnected.efu"
