Categorizing and Filtering File Search Results

Another advanced feature provided by VX Search is the ability to filter search results by one or more of second-level file categories. For example, let's assume that we have searched for all pictures and image files in a computer. The top pane of the VX Search main GUI application shows the file search results and the bottom pane shows file categories.

Select one or more file categories in the bottom pane, press the right mouse button and select the 'Apply Filters' menu item. VX Search will filter the search results and show files matching the selected file categories.

Now, the user can export reports and/or perform file management operations, such as file copy, move or delete, on files matching the selected file categories. In order to clear the selected file categories press the 'Clear' button located on the right side of the categories progress bar.
