Scan C drive (OS) in the end

Post by reddevil » Tue Apr 09, 2013 8:33 am

I have 4 drives (1tb~2tb), 10 partitions and a lot of startup apps.At the time of logging in, Everything starts to scan 'c' drive (win 7 32-bit OS installed) first and takes a couple of minutes. I have noticed that if i run everything after all my startup apps, its scans faster (probably other apps are writing to c drive during the time of scanning at boot time). So, can there be an option to change the drive scan order (i would set c drive to last)?

Thanks and Regards,

Unfortunately, there is no option to set the order the drives are scanned when indexing.

There is a command line option -load-delay you can use to specify the time in milliseconds to delay the loading of the database.

Try starting Everything on start up with:

Code: Select all

Everything.exe -startup -load-delay 60000
