Find-in-find doesn't work on UNC paths
« on: October 03, 2017, 09:13:10 pm »
When I use big-find to FIF on \\joes-pc\c\program files, the search fails.
The search results window shows this:

Find all "things", Match case, Regular expression (Perl), Subfolders, "\joes-pc\C\Program Files", "*", Exclude: ".git\;*.Z;*.a;*.avi;"
Failed to open: C:\joes-pc\C\Program Files
Total found: 0     Matching files: 0     Total files searched: 1

Changing it to \\\\joes-pc\c\program files
makes it work.

I am not getting that when I type in a UNC path for the Look-in.  Is that some custom command or recorded macro?

Worked for me too. The top line looks like this for me:
Code: [Select]
Find all "main", Regular expression (Perl), Subfolders, "\\file01\public\clark\Program Files", "*", Exclude: ".git\;*.Z;*.a;*.avi;"

I noticed your top line is missing the \\ in the front. It only has one \. That didn't happen for me.

Sorry about that -- it is a customization I made.
