ReFS partition index is forced to rebuild every boot

Postby roBsonn » Mon Sep 11, 2017 6:21 am

I have two partitions, one formatted as NTFS, other as ReFS (without using Storage Spaces). When I open Everything, the ReFS index is being rebuilt from start, and because it's 2 TB large, it takes a very long time and undesirable amounts of repeated disk IO. This happens every boot.

I had no such problem with NTFS partitions - having installed the Everything service, only the latest changes were updated, which only took seconds. Entire partition was scanned anew ONLY when i forced rebuilt from Options.

Is it normal behaviour? I hope not, as I have the same USN Journal config options enabled for both NTFS and ReFS.

Could you please send the Everything debug output to support@voidtools.com after restarting your computer:
  • In Everything, type in the following search and press ENTER:
    /debug_log=1
  • Restart your computer.
  • After Everything reindexes your ReFS volume, please send your %TEMP%\Everything Debug Log.txt to support@voidtools.com.

To disable debug logging:
  • In Everything, type in the following search and press ENTER:
    /debug_log=0

I managed to capture this situation in a log file! Sorry it took so long, it wasn't 100% repeatable at boot (maybe some other factors are in play). It happened two times in a row (after boot, then after an hour later). Here are both logs (I will also send them at supplied e-mail):

Thanks for the debug output.

Both the C: drive and D: drive USN Journals have changed too much since Everything was closed and restarted.

Are you performing a backup to these drives on shutdown or other procedure that may be changing your file systems on shutdown (eg: large windows update)?

Please try increasing your USN journal size:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the NTFS tab on the left.
  • Select your C: drive.
  • Change Maximum size to 65536 KB.
  • Click the ReFS tab on the left.
  • Select your D: drive.
  • Change Maximum size to 65536 KB.
  • Click OK.

Please see if Everything 882b helps.
