Find and replace

Post by ilnur17021992 » Wed Mar 31, 2021 10:30 pm

Hello. Periodically, I need to replace files on disk D that are located deep in subfolders. Is it possible to use this utility to find and replace all the files found? If yes, tell me how to do it, thank you in advance.

Everything cannot compare files with existing files yet.

Everything does have an Advanced Move feature, this might be useful if you are familiar with regex and you are building the deep path from the filename:
  • In Everything, Select the files you wish to move.
  • From the Edit menu, under the Advanced submenu, click Advanced Move.
  • Check Regex.
  • Use regular expression capture groups to build the full path from the old filename.
