Hard Drive Crash

Post by Azrael1018 » Tue Dec 08, 2009 5:08 pm

I lost an external hard drive - totally trashed. I think I had important stuff backed up but sure. Can I start Everything and look in database for that hard drive to see what directories and files it contained.

I think I would need to start Everything without it automatically reindexing since that hard drive now no longer exists.

Basically, I want to see yesterdays copy of the db.

Alternatively, can I access the db with another program (e.g. MS Access)?

Thanks,

Dave

See here, Option to freeze database.

I would backup the existing database first.
(Or even put 389b & a copy of the database into its' own directory.)

And wait on void to confirm what I've said.

Like therube said..

Make a backup of your "Everything" database and copy it to an empty directory with "Everything" 389b from:
