Network Drives / File Deletions etc update

Post by meteorquake »

When deleting from a network drive, you delete a file but it stays in the list.
* It would be good if it was removed from the index at the time of successful deletion.
I suspect other actions might need reflecting too in a similar way such as renames.

And a completely random idea, perhaps the ToDo list could have a line filter, so you type a comma-separated (OR) list of words/phrases and it shows the lines filtered by them.

Cheers, David

Do you have Attempt to monitor changes enabled for this network drive? That enables Everything to keep track of changes in real-time.

That setting can be found under Menu:Tools > Options > Indexes > Network Drives.
Select the appropriate mapped network drive from the list and check the aforementioned setting.

I'll look at that but I should say the need isn't to be constantly monitoring the folders (it has zillions of folders and files), just to reflect the adjustments made from the Everything GUI.
If it wanted to monitor the folders it noted were being worked on there would be no harm in that.

Everything uses the shell to delete files.

Everything should be getting shell change notifications and processing them if you have monitoring enabled.

Please check the debug console.
Shell change notifications are shown in Cyan color.

I'll check it out. I should specify the network share is a Linux share.
I was thinking the Rename/Delete just needed to check if it had been successful and update the index accordingly.

Everything 1.5.0.1362a will now update your index from successful file operations.

This feature is enabled by default and will work with FAT, network drives and folder indexes.
NTFS and ReFS indexes will continue to only update from USN events to prevent sync issues.



The following file operations will update your index immediately:
Rename
Move
Delete to recycle bin
Delete (permanently)



Monitoring file operations will obey your Index -> Pause updates setting.
Changes can be missed if you select Stop updating.



Monitoring file operations uses IFileOperationProgressSink which requires Windows Vista or later.



To disable monitoring of successful file operations:
  • In Everything 1.5, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Advanced tab on the left.
  • To the right of Show settings containing, search for:
    monitor
  • Select monitor_file_operation.
  • Set the value to: false
  • Click OK.
