Search Everything not working?

Post by Flamsterette_X » Thu Jul 02, 2020 10:48 pm

Hi, I just noticed that Search Everything seems to just give me folder names in my results. I haven't changed anything in my settings. Checking the results, it only gives me results from a D:\GameOver\GameOver\GameOver folder which Windows can't find. Help, please?

This happens when the Everything.db (the everything database file on disk) is filled with zeros.

Please try forcing a rebuild:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Indexes tab on the left.
  • Click Force Rebuild.
  • Click OK.
-If this doesn't work, please try:
  • Completely exit Everything (right click the Everything system tray icon and click Exit)
  • In Windows Explorer, type in the following address and press ENTER:
    Delete your Everything.db
    Restart Everything.
