Problem with everything indexing / finding items

Post by bombadilio » Fri Sep 13, 2013 11:34 pm

I have a problem which is new. Everything is not indexing properly, and I do not know how to reindex.

I have 3TB of storage and for example if I want to find hosts

I would type hosts c:\windows so it would find hosts in that directory. Nothing is showing up.

If I wanted to find artwork from the met I have a directory called metart on one of my drives nothing is showing up it is really weird and a new issue. Any ideas? Is it my windows indexer thats messing everything up?

You could delete everything.db

Use Search Everything to find them (there might be a couple), right click and open path (because you won't be able to delete it when Everything is active), close and make sure you have exited everything (from the systray too) and then delete the files and restart.
