My Book Desktop 8 TB not added to the index?

Postby Biff » Fri Sep 22, 2017 5:38 pm

How could one make Everything index the My Book Desktop 8 TB:

https://www.amazon.de/My-Book-Desktop-T ... B01LWVT81X

The drive is not (automatically) added to the index, it is not indexed.

Reviews here, https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product. ... 6822235160, mention "exFAT".

Everything deals (directly) with NTFS, but should be able to search (not as efficiently) by using a Folder Index.

Thank you very much!

The drawback seems to be that Everything does not automatically update a folder index when a drive is plugged in, so one has to do it manually, I guess. I am wondering why it is not possible? I would think, when It is abel to monitor a drive it should be able to automatically update / scan a drive when plugged in, but obviously it is not like that.

And why does one have the option to add a time period for rescanning when Everything monitors the drive anyway.

I have those settings now:

Everything does not automatically rescan (every 1 minute) and not monitor the drive Z:. And when I click "Rescan now" nothing happens. What could I do to make it work?

Should one activate "Rescan on full buffer" to not to miss any file? Does it take much longer to rescan on full buffer?
