Step 1: Pull the internal file path to include the folders of interest

For example, let’s assume this is the full file path of a set of documents:

\2017 Logikcull Sample Data large.zip\2017 Logikcull Sample Data\001_Mail_PST\sally_beck_002_1_1_1.pst\Top of Personal Folders\beck-s\Beck, Sally\Beck, Sally\Drafts (Lotus Notes)

Let's say you're only interested in the sally_beck_002_1_1_1.pst path

You would want to select the file path up until the folder you are interested in.

In this case, it would look like this:

“\2017 Logikcull Sample Data large.zip\2017 Logikcull Sample Data\001_Mail_PST\sally_beck_002_1_1_1.pst”

Step 2: Pull up the power search and select the file path field

Step 3: Copy and paste the file path to include only the folders of interest into the search bar.

⚠️ Make sure to keep the double-quotes.

For example, the basic search bar should appear like this once you have populated the “File Path” field:

file_path:"\2017 Logikcull Sample Data large.zip\2017 Logikcull Sample Data\001_Mail_PST\sally_beck_002_1_1_1.pst"

You can switch to the table view to verify all the file paths and review your results. This field is sortable, meaning you can sort documents by file path. This is useful if you need to search for documents within a subfolder or subdirectory.

You can also run a CSV download with the file path data. Make sure to include the File Path field, and then export the results into a spreadsheet.

⚠️ Slack Uploads Note!

Slack file paths are captured with forward-facing slashes. Please make sure your searches reflect this.
