Multiple File Name Search
When conducting an advanced search, in the first dropdown, select Multiple Filenames. A field to the right will allow you to list all of the filenames that you would like to search for. The maximum number of characters that this field can fit is 4000.
You can place entire lists here and separate each individual filename with either a comma or the enter key by placing each filename on its own line.
Select Search to run the search by those filenames.
