Regular Expression Multiple File Extension Error

Post by Naren »

I have written regular expression in the 'Exclude files Filter' as given in the example to exclude file extension other than jpg, jpeg and png
Regular Expression: ^.*\.(?!mp4$|jpeg$|png$)[^.]+$
Regular Expression: ^.*\.(?!txt$)[^.]+$ (It is working properly)

When I am running the task i am getting the below error:

Code: Select all

ERR 2022-05-14 14:42:49 An unexpected error occurred: Illegal characters: [|] in path.
Parameter name: path
