How to move / copy 50.000 files?

Post by Biff » Thu Jun 10, 2021 11:11 am

When I in the result list mark all files and try to move them with the mouse pointer Everything does not response anymore (for a long time). It is not possible / a good way to move / copy files. How could one do it?

I think you are running into limitations of Windows

Instead of dragging the files to a folder, use 'the Everything way' ;)

Menu:Edit > Move To Folder ...
