Everything

Troubleshooting

Missing files

Certain files under Windows Vista and Windows 7 are hard links.

"Everything" will not include hard links.

For example, on Windows 7 C:\windows\notepad.exe is a hard link to c:\windows\system32\notepad.exe

Only the original file c:\windows\system32\notepad.exe will show in "Everything".


Corrupt files and folders are automatically excluded by "Everything". Please check your disk(s) for errors.


To check your disk(s) for errors:

  • In My Computer, for each volume:
  • Right click and select Properties.
  • Click the Tools tab.
  • Click Check now....
  • Select Automatically fix file system errors.
  • Click Start.
  • If prompted to schedule the disk check the next time you restart the computer select Yes.

Rebuilding the database

To force "Everything" to rebuild the database:

  • In "Everything", from the the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Indexes tab.
  • Click Force rebuild.
  • Click OK.

Recreate the USN Journal

To force the NTFS driver to rebuild the USN Journal:

  • In "Everything", from the the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the NTFS tab.
  • Select the NTFS volume .
  • Uncheck Enable USN Journal Logging.
  • Click Apply.
  • Check Enable USN Journal Logging.
  • Click OK.

Error log

Additional error information is reported to

%APPDATA%\Everything\Errorlog.txt

If Store settings and data in %APPDATA%\Everything is disabled, Errorlog.txt is stored in the same location as Everything.exe.


The Errorlog.txt may contain useful information about the last error Windows encountered.

A description of the error code from GetLastError can be found in the list of System Error Codes.

HTTP Server does not start

This is most commonly caused by another service using port 80.


Try to change the HTTP server port.


For example: to change the HTTP server port to 8080:


  • In "Everything", from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Under the HTTP tab, change the HTTP Server Port to 8080.
  • Click OK.

To connect to this server:

  • In your web browser, enter http://localhost:8080
  • Change localhost to the server name for remote access.
