Files in zip archives not found

Post by jsampson45 »

I am new to DeskRule. I am adding external media to my catalog i.e. CDRW disks. I have "enter virtual folders" set which I thought would record filenames in zip archives on the disks. However, files in these archives are not found when doing an "offline search". I would welcome advice.

i don't think offline search walks into zipfolders (in the first place), so you wouldn't be able to find in zips in this situation
if you do a normal search (your hard disk) then "enter virtual folders" option would search in zips, at a great loss of speed though
