Do not traverse filesystems
« on: October 06, 2017, 09:57:00 pm »
(This is mostly for Linux, but really the same applies in Windows because you can have file systems mounted on a path, not just a drive letter)

Is it possible to get FindInFiles to not traverse into filesystem mount points?
(Same for other directory scanners, such as Project->AddTree).

And ... Why does Project Properties -> Add Tree have a checkbox for "Follow symlinks", but FindInFiles doesn't?
I see FIF does not follow SymLinks, but if you would want AddTree to follow them, you might also want FIF to do so as well.
