Scanning every time I restore offline USB volume

Post by burgundy » Mon Mar 04, 2019 12:46 pm

Everything scans a USB disk every time I plug it in. Can I avoid the scan and instead use the index data previously stored by Everything?

Below are my settings.

Options > Indexes > NTFS:
"Auto include new fixed volumes" = OFF
"Auto include new removable volumes" = OFF
"Auto remove offline volumes" = OFF

For the USB disk:
"Include in database" = ON
"Enable USN Journal" = OFF
"Enable USN Journal in recent changes" = OFF
"Monitor changes" = OFF

Thanks for the detailed info.

Everything should not be rescanning your USB disk with those settings.

Everything might be temporarily seeing your USB disk as a ReFS volume.

Please make sure Automatically include fixed volumes and Automatically include removable volumes are disable for ReFS volumes:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
    Click the ReFS tab on the left.
  • Uncheck Automatically include fixed volumes.
  • Uncheck Automatically include removable volumes.
  • Click OK.
Everything might think this volume has moved, could you please disable automatically remove moved NTFS volumes:
  • In Everything, type in the following search and press ENTER:
    /auto_remove_moved_ntfs_volumes=0
  • If successful, you should see auto_remove_moved_ntfs_volumes=0 in the status bar for a few seconds.
Could you please send some debug logs when you insert your USB disk?
  • In Everything, type in the following search and press ENTER:
    /debug_log
  • Insert your USB disk.
  • Wait for Everything to start a "quick" reindex.
  • In Everything, type in the following search and press ENTER:
    /restart
  • This will restart Everything, a restart is necessary to stop the debug logging.
  • Could you please send your %TEMP%\Everything Debug Log.txt to support@voidtools.com

It turns out that I had one of the REFS options set to "Uncheck Automatically include fixed volumes." Thank you for your help.
