Is there an existed workflow that using full-path search?

Recommended Posts

I want to search a file on my Mac according to its filename and its parent folder's name. 


For example, I know the target filename is 'aaa' like, and it is contained by a 'bbb' like named folder:


If I search the file in Alfred via:

find bbb aaa

There will be no results at all.



Actually, this target file can be found by the following command in the terminal:

mdfind aaa | grep -i bbb

It is said that, the search engine of Alfred is based on Spotlight, however Spotlight treats the path in a special way, it can't be used in constructing searches.


So, I wonder, is there an already existed workflow that can find a file using filename and folder name?


Thanks so much!
