I have been looking at the Syntax menu but I shill can't figure out exactly what I need to enter.

I would like to nominates one drive say'd' & then have all files sorted my size.

How is this done?

Thank you in advance

Please make sure all search options are unchecked and the Everything filter is checked in the Search menu.

You can limit the search results by searching for the root of the volume.
For example to limit the results to the D: drive, search for:

Code: Select all

D:
If you wish to search multiple drives, use the OR (|) operator, for example to search D: and E: :

Code: Select all

D:|E:
To sort by size you will need click the size column.

Please note Everything does not index size information, you will need to resort by size each time you change the search.
Indexing sizes will be available in the next release of Everything.
