Doesn't work here
It just doesn't load any database and is hanged in some continous loop saying Quering USN change journal on C:

Well, mysteriously it's working now.
Still I think it would be better to tell exactly what to do, instead of hanging in infinite loop by the program itself.
btw is 8mb only the limit or it's relative to volume size? i know my volumes are generally having pretty low free space but still i leave 10-15mb or so

8mb is the default USN Journal size, you can change this in Tools -> Options -> Volumes.

Bug:

This bug has been introduced with version 1.2.1.446a - works correctly with 1.2.1.436a.

For me a showstopper, back to 1.2.1.436a.

I agree. It is nice to have only one window and be able to close it using the keyboard [Esc] to quickly do a search and not fill up your taskbar.

I'm using ver. 1.2.1.451a

Thanks for the best Windows application ever.

Please release an update with this issue fixed, when possible.

See Bug in version 1.2.1.451a for a solution.

Allow multiple windows will only take effect when you run another Everything.exe.
I would recommend leaving Allow multiple windows enabled and using the new option Toggle window from notification icon and Toggle window hotkey to use only one window.

Everything version 1.2.1.371 will let me search these mounted volumes/images (which are assigned a drive letter), but this new version won't. (I'm don't know what version this would have appeared initially in). The mounted drive doesn't show up in the volumes tab unlike the released version which may be why it no longer works?

Could I doing something wrong or missing an option?

Thank you for your help. I've been experiencing an issue with Everything, since I installed the latest alpha. However, I'm not sure if it's a result of installing the latest alpha or my changing a setting after installing the latest build. When I try to search for a file in a folder on my hard drive using the context menu, Everything shows no results. However, if I just open Everything and search for a file, the file appears. I would attach a screen shot to show what I mean, but apparently this isn't possible.

I had the same issue today. I would right-click a folder to use the "Search Everything..." context menu, and the results are empty every time. Searching for files worked fine, but if I include a slash (/), I get empty results.

I backed up the folder, then deleted the Everything database (.db) and the settings (.ini ) file and Everything is working as it should now. I'll try fixing my settings manually how they were and see if all is fine.

Update: All works fine now. But... If I restore my old settings (Everything.ini) the problem returns.

Update2: I found the problem. If you accidentally pressed Ctrl-E (which I probably did), it turns off the Match Path option under the Search menu item. I found it by comparing the working .ini file with the non-working one in Notepad++. The line below was one that was highlighted as different.

match_path_when_search_contains_path_separator=0

Thanks for your help deepdvd. Unfortunately, even after deleting the .ini and .db files, I still can't search folder paths. I even checked to make sure the Match Path option was selected, and it does have a check mark.

That looks like your problem right there. It should be one... not zero
match_path_when_search_contains_path_separator=1

It doesn't make sense that it initialized as 0 though (since you said you deleted it). When I deleted mine, it defaulted to 1. Did you exit "Everything" before you deleted them? It recreates it when you close the window, so you should be exiting Everything prior to deleting if you want to start fresh (or even modifying the .ini file)

Unfortunately, I switched the highlighted parameter to 1, but still no go. After restarting Everything, I went back into the .ini file to confirm that the parameter's value was still 1. This was the case. This issue is occurring on both my Windows XP and 7 machines.

I'm running the above named version, and I have a consistent issue.

If I use a rename utility to rename a bunch of files in a folder structure, Everything suddenly thinks that folder is empty. Even turning off the DB for the folder and then turning it back on again doesn't regenerate the database.

I have to stop Everything, delete the database, then start it again to generate the correct listing.

Since a 3rd party application is doing the renames, is it somehow bypassing the method that Everything uses to update the database?

FWIW, I just tried this with a 3rd party renaming utility http://www.fauland.com/af5.htm and I didn't have any issues with this version of Everything.

Thanks David, for a wonderful program. I love fast-tiny things.

Just getting started ... would like to index a network storage volume ( 2.2 m files and growing).
The implementation is a small linux kernel running on an ARM processor, and the wonderful
news is that it is programmable. So I have the new fun project of building a web server on this
device that will be running the everything server.

Suggestion: point the installed help system to the forum FAQ.
Took me awhile to find my way around ... running two everythings on Win7, indexing
separate volumes containing 8TB of data.

I put the everything.db on the device I index. Let me know if that is a bad idea.

Another favorite program is Beyond Compare, which I have converted into a replacement
Explorer to eliminate the nonsense of not being able to access directories on my own
What part of "personal computer" has Microsoft lost touch with.

Beyond Compare is highly tailorable to act on files, or launch programs like "cygwin" into the directory.

I have the same problem on Irfanview. Not every time. Dbl click, image shows briefly (3 seconds), then blanks out, has disk activity and eventually comes back maybe 15 seconds later. Hour glass entire time. Once done, the next image is fast. (Just did BMP and had problem).

### Re: "Everything" version 1.2.1.451a

Posted: Sat Feb 06, 2010 12:45 am
(IrfanView can be quite inefficient as it enumerates large directories & or directory trees. So when you click an image & expect that it is only dealing with that singular image, it still reads through, into memory I suppose, the entire directory structure, creating a noticeable lag when you're jumping around. Perhaps Irfan needs to use Everything-like means to accomplish the same .)

### Re: "Everything" version 1.2.1.451a

Posted: Sat Feb 06, 2010 4:53 am
And all those Windows routines which you use to select a subdirectory. Some of them are incredibly tedious! Seems like it reads the entire disk, file by file!

For some reason I think it is Irfanview, however I've never had that problem with image files but have always had it with large font directories. Explorer stops and reads each font file to determine whether its Open Type or not (or something). I use Directory Opus which doesn't do that.

I use "everything" everyday and due to its simplicity and efficiency I wonder, every time I use it, how on earth I ever did with out it. Thank you David!
I work in the IT industry and now load it on every computer I work on. After about 20 such installations I began to get, in amongst mostly praise, a complaint or two about delays occurring when new external hard disks were plugged in - that is, the software will not respond or show no search results until the drive has been indexed. It also seems to re-index the drive in question if its is power cycled or its temporarily disconnected.
This is inefficient and very troublesome for a persons working with many such drives every day.

I wish to ask if its possible to avoid this behavior, perhaps by allowing the search to go on/keeping the program responsive while the indexing is going on and/or reveal the results as they become available in the database?
As a second step I would love to see an option where one could keep a catalog of specific drives and have that catalog be searchable and updatable either automatically or manually.
I can imagine two modes, that can be me mixed or activated individually, where one searches the contents of connected(live) drivers and the other cataloged(offline) drivers. And where the drives could be identified by their hardware id.

Thanks again for this wonderful software David.

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_B=0
check_media_C=1
check_media_D=0
check_media_E=0

I would rather see file & folder size indexing implemented first. Should be optional though, it would add a lot to indexing time.

I wish everything were open-source, but then again, some projects don't get many contributors.
You know David, you could actually sell Everything. It is probably the single piece of software I wouldn't mind paying for.
