Re: Search results: How to display seconds in date columns?

I like it. is it the "run count" switch set that isn't documented? The GUI popup is slick though not my style, but it's given me a couple of ideas already for enhancing my own Set-GoLocation and my version of "cd" (Set-LocationFile). They are separate right now but probably will be combined. Using t...

Re: Search results: How to display seconds in date columns?

First and foremost, I love Everything (es really) - it's become part of my everyday workflow for so many things. 'Everyday' actually understates it, there's almost not an hour goes by that I don't use it. (MORE often that that really.) I live at the command line -- for everything (heh heh) except Em...

Re: Search Syntax Help

NP, I just thought the EXE: macro was supposed to be available after reading the above. There are a few ways to get at this. One simple improvement for the "ext:" macro would be to ignore a leading '.' (dot) since by definition all extensions have a dot, at least implicitly. As is you can't use this...

Re: Search results: How to display seconds in date columns?

> Coule you provide an example of how that works? (for others...) Sure. First of all there are ways to do much of this in es.exe directly. But not everything can be done in everything (yet?), so knowing how to use es.exe and PowerShell together is a very useful skill set. Here's a sorted datetime fo...

Re: Search Syntax Help

Great thread. Caused me to find this type of info in the manual -- didn't know these macros and keywords existing/worked for es.exe. exe: & zip: (maybe more) don't seem to be working from es.exe (version ES 1.1.0.10). None of these work: es exe: es exe:* es exe: rg es exe: *rg* es zip: powershell es...

Re: Search results: How to display seconds in date columns?

Came to find out if es.exe (Commandline) could format a sortable date and saw this. Didn't see the answer and the syntax that worked in the GUI didn't seem to have an effect. Work around: In Windows TIme Settings (click on task bard time/clock). set the date and time formats there. I noticed by read...

Re: Many/many files, long path names, NTFS junction loops? SOLVED --> my crummy drive was culprit

Fascinating, and I had read a bit last night about how Everything (and similar) programs were working with the MFT/USN, and already had some (old) knowledge of the NTFS mechanism though I never wrote a file system driver or filter. > The Everything database must be loaded in memory to use it. That i...

Re: Many/many files, long path names, NTFS junction loops?

As I suspected it was my crappy system -- which is not completely under my control. Turns out that I had 2 corporate mapped drives that are almost always unreachable except when I explicitly connect to their VPN. They had persistently mapped these drives -- maybe worse in a GPO ...? Even though I ha...

Re: Many/many files, long path names, NTFS junction loops?

So I would like to use Everything on my laptop and it seems it's worse than I thought. After 6+ hours, it still hasn't shown the file list -- though the window finally did pop open a few hours after start. (Window frame with nothing in data/client area.) Pressing the "close" box results in a popup s...

Re: Many/many files, long path names, NTFS junction loops?

The focus of the questions was not for you to troubleshoot my crappy system, but to find out if the things likely to be wrong here were problems for Everything. (Which the ones I mentioned apparently are not likely to give Everything any trouble.) I had pretty much done all that you said, but I unin...

Many/many files, long path names, NTFS junction loops? SOLVED --> my crummy drive was culprit

First, I love this and haven't really used it much yet. The ES command line search is especially lovable. (Is ES experimental still?). I don't do much "GUI" searching on any machine but seeing as it had both a VERY QUICK GUI and the ability to use a PowerShell or cmd query with ES this is fantastic....
