Help regarding search for uncategorized files

Post by Eyael » Thu Mar 15, 2012 6:12 pm

Hi!
I'd be grateful if anyone (or Pierre) could tell me what's the use of the Exclusion/Indusion section in DB cache (options). I thought it would be used to define which folders/drives to include/exclude in order to search for pictures/files but obviously it doesn't seem to work this way. I've defined a lot of excluded and included folders in order to search for uncategorized files and I obtained a lot of files within folders I had excluded. Too bad. :(

It's not for categories but for thumbnails caching

Thank you, Pierre :)
Then it would be nice to be able to search for uncategorized files within a defined range rather than the whole computer. Or maybe add another option for sorting like by category or categorized/uncategorized. You see, I have messed up something and now I have to find some files that used to be categorized but now longer are and it's quite tricky when you've got loads of pics in loads of folders.
