    registry filter string should match a path to the registry key all the sub keys along with registry values in the path specified are filtered e g choosing HKEY LOCAL MACHINE as root key and setting Software Microsoft Windows NT as key will filter all data inside Windows registry key While specifying a simple filter condition you can use wildcard characters same as for file system search for example setting a file system filter value to Temp will filter all the folders that start with Temp from all logical drive such as C Temp D Temporary Data etc Regular Expressions Using regular expressions is a more advanced way of a filter condition specification Regular expression is a string that is used to match a set of strings particular characters words or patterns of characters according to certain syntax rules that are described below Regular expressions usage is a more flexible way of specifying a filter value than a simple filter condition because one regular expression can cover lots of items to be filtered e g CommonUserFolder Local Settings Application Data expression will filter all the folders from the Local Settings folder of each user except the Application Data folder The following syntax should be used to define a filter condition with a help of regular expression Metacharacter Meaning Matches any single character Indicates a character class Matches any character inside the brackets for example abc matches a b and c If this metacharacter occurs at the start of a character class it negates the character class A negated character class matches any character except those inside the brackets for example abc matches all characters except a b and c If is at the beginning of the regular expression it matches the beginning of the input for example abc will only match input that begins with a b or c In a character class indicates a range of characters for example 0 9 matches any of the digits 0 through 9 Indicates that the preceding expression is optional it matches once or not at all for example 0 9 0 9 matches 2 and 12 Indicates that the preceding expression matches one or more times for example 0 9 matches 1 13 456 and so on Indicates that the preceding expression matches zero or more times Non greedy versions of and These match as little as possible unlike the greedy versions that match as much as possible for example given the input abc def matches abc while matches abc def Grouping operator for example d d matches a list of numbers separated by commas such as 1 or 1 23 456 Indicates a match group Escape character interpret the next character literally for example 0 9 matches one or more digits but 0 9 matches a digit followed by a plus character Also used for abbreviations such as a for any alphanumeric character see the following table for details If is followed by a number n it matches the nth match
