Hard Links (hardlink) & Windows SxS (WinSxS)
It appears that Everything will only enumerate 1 file descriptor of a (multiple) hard linked file?
It appears that which file returned can be arbitrary?
With Windows 7 & its WinSxS directory structure (full of hard links), it is feasible that sometimes a file my be found in WinSxS & sometimes elsewhere.
Would excluding (Tools | Options -> Exclude) the /WinSxS/ directory help with some of that arbitrariness of files found? Or would that cause other problems, like some files not found at all?
(Was updating TreeSize & while there, had a look at an updated UltraSearch & noted that they exclude WinSxS by default.)
In C:\Windows\System32\ folders are found, but files are not
A file not indexed for some reason
