[x2] 'Find Files' slows, crashes on temp internet link-files

on further investigation of x2 i find that it really doesn't like to operate in folders containing web-links. -- may be related to what i reported earlier as x2 following some ftp-links (actually returned some valid remote directory listings) specifically, when browsing in 'documents and settings' u...

hmmm... I'm sure I've seen them upside-right, somewhere ... here's an example: in m$-own file search tool via (i hate this): START\Search\(for files or folders)\(search ottions)\(date)\(in the last) and find the controls upside right for both 'days' and 'months' ! {the above example for W2K) Even so...

I'll settle for that.

btw -- the incr/decr 'buttons' for many (if not all) value entry fields in the rule defn pop-up box are upside down (the upper btn decrements, lower btn increments). But I suspect you already know that & have it on your fixit list.

x2 file search with date constraints - suggestion

Nikos, Because search by date/time (especially for most recent X hrs/days) is so useful (and common, I claim); how about putting access to that 'filter' on the search pane as it was with 2x? Perhaps that might seem redundant, but often redundancy is good -- and even more efficient in the long run (f...

Thanx - I googled & got a gaggle of 'em.
I also see that I have negelected to RTFM such as it is (i.e. the alpha.txt file) after a quick initial scan before installing x2 (& when most of the details had less meaning)

Keep up the good work!

ok - that's another way But my next observation is that both moving the offending folder to a special place (what i did) and excluding it from the search (as you suggest) requires advance knowledge of where the pits are, or of their nature. I wonder what a generic 'stay on local machine' filter woul...

x2 'Find files' searches remote ftp-links !!!

I have found an interesting 'feature' wherein x2 file searches follow some ws_ftp_pro links onto the web and searches for files there, taking extended periods of time and returning a variety of illegal access type errors (especially on stale ftp lists). Having found what was taking so long (with the...

Bingo ! That works wonderfully. Thanks Narayan. I had missed trying that 'button', having found the others to be inactive. And I see the other buttons in the additional rules section become alive once a rule exists. And the most recent rule(s) used are 'sticky' for additional searches while x2 remai...

x2 - search with date constraints?

I'm a new (1-month) 2x user and just started to eval x2 today. I like it better than 2x except I haven't found out how to search (find files) with date contraints in x2 (like I can with 2x). Nor have I found how to activate "Additional Rules" for searching. (i.e. haven't discovered 'how-to' by pokin...
