Files scanner not working

I'm using PDQ Inventory 1.0 release 2 in Pro Mode on Windows 7 SP1 x86 and scanning the same platform of machine.

I've created a new scanning profile to scan for a particular file. I have used the following settings:

All Disks: unchecked
Root Directory: C:\Windows\System32\Macromed\Flash
All Sub Directories: checked
File Patterns: empty

I'm not getting any errors during the scan. But when I open the machine I've scanned using this profile, the Files category is empty. I've check this directory--it has 5 files in the client machine. Is this a possible bug or have I configured this incorrectly? Thanks!

  • Put *.* into the file patterns, and see if it works.  I believe this was done to prevent accidentally scanning too many files.

  • Yep! That worked. Thanks!
