EFUtool v1.0 published - Fast EFU update tool

Hi all,

I've published a tool to create and update EFU files, supporting a very fast folder re-scan method - about 7x faster than Everything scanning for network shares. The created EFU files are compatible with Everything and can be loaded into it.

Please see this thread for details:
viewtopic.php?f=6&t=7545

Github source, documentation and benchmarks:
https://github.com/zybexXL/EFUtool

Download:
https://github.com/zybexXL/EFUtool/releases

Note that this is only useful for network shares. For local disks just use Everything's native volume indexing.
Hopefully David will soon make this tool redundant 8-)

Pharra, what do you want to do exactly?
To index local NTFS disks you don't need EFUs, just enable the disks in Everything's settings. For non-NTFS disks you can use EFUTool to index them - just read the intructions on the webpage to generate the EFUs, then load them into Everything.

I want the changes made in file locations, which are in an efu list, to be recognized by the efu list and the paths are updated.
so I could reproduce the archives directly from this list again ...

Sorry, I did not read the instructions on the page. then the: efutool myIndex.efu
Would that be the solution I need?
