Yes. It's possible to do with AFR.

Go to Find tab.
Check Native type.
Then enter a string with minus (-) sign before it.
For example,
-"hello world"
Will search for files that do NOT contain hello world as a string.

or you can use -hello (without double quotes) to search for files that do not contain hello.
