Everything Search shows zero objects.

Postby Anthony2816 » Thu Jul 23, 2015 5:15 pm

I saw a couple of previous posts on this topic, but no answer was given. When I first boot my computer, Everything Search works fine. But after some random time or event, subsequent openings of the program from the system tray shows zero objects. The only way I've found to fix it is to reboot my computer.

I'm using version 1.3.4.686

Open the Search menu & verify that you hadn't inadvertently enabled an unwanted filter.

If you have 0 objects then it is highly likely Everything encountered an error when re-indexing.

Please force a rebuild from Tools -> Options -> Indexes.

Please try enabling Keep offline volumes as this may reduce the times Everything needs to re-index.

I'll try that, but am still waiting for the problem to pop up again. Thanks!

It is most likely that, under Tools/Options/Indexes/NTFS, you don't have any drives selected for indexing.
