Re: Open Source Status

The code isn't that complex. You can easily reverse engineer the code. So what's the problem?! I've seen no reason to stop using this program and use my own. The software I wrote is to index external hard drives and that's it. It was based on reverse engineering Everything software. My software keep...

Re: support for fuzzy logic search ?

What issue did you have with Levenshtein distance? Ive played around with that one and it works. Just very slow (at least my implementation) unless you do fancy optimizations. Everyone have more than one core now. Parallelization search could speed it up. You could try Damerau–Levenshtein distance. ...

Re: Option to periodically sync the database to disk

I'm interested in this feature. I rarely shutdown my computer so if the computer unexpectedly lose power or similar then I'll end up with a very old database so I'm unable to see what files were for example on my ram drive or if Iost some recent files on my normal harddrives. Having a script that re...

Multiple search queries at the same time

For example:
c:\ ext:dmp \\& c:\ firefox ext:exe

Everything will perform all searches split up with \\& and display the combined results.


Off topic side note: The support page is useless for figuring out what macros are used for! :shock: :( Don't feel supported. Examples are always useful.

Re: What data structures does ES use internally?

There was some talk a few years ago about how Everything works in an irc channel. Mind you, I barely/vaguely remember the discussion. One person said Everything stores all the file/folder names in an array. Have some form of tree structure, maybe some version of B-Tree. The tree among other things c...

Re: Why Don't Other Softwares Use the MFT?

Why would you need to write your own NTFS driver? Yes, it may be more compatible but a real pita to write and debug. There are existing apis for getting filesize, very slow. Can be done in a background thread lazily and lazily update the virtual listview with the new information. Only expensive (ex...

Re: IPC in Everything 1.4

FYI: This move makes it seem that you are not going to release the whole source code.

Also why are you using your own string length function rather than the standard one?

Re: File size query is slow caching needed

Been using size and date functions often recently and noticed this too. Based on the hard drive activity, 'Everything' doesn't seem to load the size and date information from the MFT table which is weird since that would be the obvious choice. Instead it accesses each file separably to ask for that ...

How is the development going?

There have been a few releases now and is now out of beta, "Everything-1.3.4.686.x64"

There was talk about opening up the source code after "the next release" a few releases back.

So have you changed your mind?

Is the developer still alive?

Have anyone talked with the developer of Everything recently?

I have tried to contact him because I want to work on the project.
I did make a clone of Everything but its memory usage was too high in my opinion compared to Everything.

Re: Everything and a bit more?

There are many ways to interpret what you said.
What was so special about this program ?

From what you describe this program can do the same (search in files)
Notepad++ can search within text files. The feature is called "Find in Files".

Re: Need help with "Everything" development ?

It's just a prototype. I made it to learn how the usn journal works while i wait on a response from 'void' (To privately help him, to speed things up). I'm currently working on the user-interface. I really do despise UI programming. I do not know when i'll have a usable *very* alpha version ready. I...

Re: Need help with "Everything" development ?

Can you describe or provide code snippets of how you made the searching of the usn journal so fast ? Never-mind, found the answer, quite simple. :oops: How do you structure up the database for fast path generation and retrieval ? Do you pre-compute the paths in advance and store the in memory or is...

Re: Need help with "Everything" development ?

I still have much to implement before the next release. I was afraid of that. I have lost patience of waiting (2 years and counting). Since you haven't open sourced the project by now i'm guessing the probability of you ever doing it is very low. So i have decided to implement my own light version ...
