From time to time Everything is unresponsive: I call its window from the system tray, but the window takes about 60+ to seconds to appear.
To investigate the problem I run Everything in debug mode. The cause seems to be this: I have two drive letters (Y:, Z:) that refer to external network locations ("\\location\etc"). They are only accessible for a limited part of the day. The delay happens whenever Everything inquires Windows about those drives:
Code: Select all
QueryDosDevice Y: \Device\LanmanRedirector\;Y:[...] Y:\ GetVolumeNameForVolumeMountPoint FAILED 87 QueryDosDevice Z: \Device\LanmanRedirector\;Z:[...] Z:\ GetVolumeNameForVolumeMountPoint FAILED 87 ntfs volume create list 0.040916 seconds
Unfortunately this didn't solve the problem.
I then also added Y: and Z: to the excluded list. But the delay still appears.
Is it possible to solve this situation somehow, and tell Everything to inquire Windows ONLY about the volumes listed in the Index/NTFS options?
Everything is an amazing program! I use it constantly during the day. Cheers!
