Not finding characters

Postby Sean » Thu Feb 24, 2011 3:49 pm

Hi,

I'm trying to find the following string ":\\", as I'm looking for references to drives and directories. SQL Search doesn't find these characters, although it will find "O:\\"

Hi Sean,

Try checking "Exact Match". Otherwise you just get hits on the letter O rather than the drive letter.

Yes, I'm using exact match, but I would like to be able to search for just the string ":\\" without specifying the drive letter, to get all of the drives that may be referenced, it doesn't look like that is possible.
