filter help, please

I'm trying to get BRU to only display folders that have the following layout: "folder name - [comments]"

I'm using the "Filters (12)" section and the "Mask" field, but no wildcard combination I've tried is working. I have the "Folders" and "Subfolders" checkboxes turned on, all others off.

I think what I'm doing wrong is how I'm telling BRU to "see" the [ character. Every combination I've tried either shows all folders or no folders.

Any help much appreciated!

You might try:

Code: Select all
*-*[*]

Hi, thanks for responding. That kind of works, but it's also showing other folders that use the bracket characters.
