I have a question about searching for files in Windows Server 2008 R2. We are automating Excel (don't ask) which when fails can leave behind the temporary files that have an extension of .XLS~
If I do a manual search for *.xls~ it appears that Server 2008 is treating the tilde as a wildcard and returning ALL *.xls files, which of course is not what I want.
Can anyone please tell me how I can do this search so it will bring back the correct files? Is there an escape character I can use? Someone told me to use double quotes and try searching for *."xls~" but that doesn't work.
