Everything 1.5 does not seem to be catching all changes to hardlinked folders

Post by JTCGiants56 » Tue Feb 08, 2022 3:43 am

I have a folder set in everything that is a hardlink. By default I know it will not see changes to this. That is why I set it manually as a folder and for everything to check every 30 minutes for updates. This works fine in 1.4, but 1.5 does not seem to always see changes after hours and hours, unless I do a full force reindex.

Thank you for the bug report JTCGiants56,

This is a bug.
Everything is using the date modified from the folder junction source (instead of the target) when performing a fast rescan.
This will be fixed in the next alpha update.


For now, please disable fast rescan from Tools -> Options -> Folders -> Select folder -> Uncheck Fast rescan.

I have also found an issue with files not being removed after a rescan.
I am working on a fix.

Everything 1.5.0.1301a fixes an issue with updating folder junctions with fast rescan enabled.

Everything was reading the time stamp from the folder junction source (instead of the folder function target).
So Everything would never update any files/folders directly in the folder junction with fast rescan enabled.

I also fixed an issue with detecting deleted folders.
