Hello, all. I am a newbie to regular expressions and to WinMerge, and am struggling with folder comparisons.
I have a folder structure something like this, with folders named "_Archive", which can appear anywhere in the structure:
I am comparing <root> in two locations, but only want to include all folders named "_Archive" and their contents (subdirectories and files.) I tried several things, but none worked; they all skipped everything, and did not compare anything.
My WinMerge comparison looks like this, with the checkbox for Subfolders checked:
One sample of my code, which is in a file named C:\Users\DisAndDat\Documents\_Archive1.flt:
desc: Only the Archive folders
f: ^\\_Archive\\ ## Filter for directory
In the Filters dialog box, I installed my .flt file from my user directory, and then selected this filter.
Can anyone tell me what I am doing wrong, please? Thank you!
