Find and Mark Files

Top  Previous  Next

You may find and mark a particular file if it is hard to find it manually. Or you may find and mark many files at once.

Please note that each find and mark/unmark operation is independent from previous ones. That is, if a file matches the search criteria, it will be marked/unmarked regardless of its previous marked/unmarked state.

For example, if you first mark all doc files, and then all txt files, all doc files remain marked, too. If you then decide to unmark all files smaller than 2 kB, all doc and txt files will stay marked except those that less than 2 kB.
