New external hard drive is automatically searched?

Post by swampdude » Tue Feb 16, 2010 4:27 pm

I'm not positive, but It appears that Search Everything automatically adds any "new" NTFS volume to the list of volumes being searched (like when I connect a new external hard drive). If so, is there a way to disable this behavior?

The only possible way with 1.2.1.371 would be to edit the Everything.ini file and change the check_media settings for each volume
For example, make the following changes to ignore new volumes (Keep any currently attached volumes set to 1).
check_media_A=0
check_media_B=0
check_media_C=1
check_media_D=0
check_media_E=0
check_media_F=0
check_media_G=0
check_media_H=0
check_media_I=0
check_media_J=0
check_media_K=0
check_media_L=0
check_media_M=0
check_media_N=0
check_media_O=0
check_media_P=0
check_media_Q=0
check_media_R=0
check_media_S=0
check_media_T=0
check_media_U=0
check_media_V=0
check_media_W=0
check_media_X=0
check_media_Y=0
check_media_Z=0
