Re: Option to periodically sync the database to disk

I'm interested in this feature. I rarely shutdown my computer so if the computer unexpectedly lose power or similar then I'll end up with a very old database [...] I'm much in the same boat. Except that Win10 is full of bugs and sometimes their shitty internal COM RPC stops responding, hung on some...

Re: Use LZ4 instead of BZ2 to compress the saved database

A simple huffman encode might be enough, ~80% of total size, saving performance was about the same and loading performance was about 1.5 times slower. uncompressed load: 1.573047 seconds compressed load: 2.034786 seconds That sounds... a bit slow. Did you try the others, lz4 in particular? Standing...

Re: Use LZ4 instead of BZ2 to compress the saved database

Something like LZ4 or snappy would give moderate size savings while the performance impact is pretty much negligible. Both should be faster than any SSD on the market, so things will still be I/O bound not CPU bound (unlike bz2). Either that, or just remove compression altogether, bz2 compression ne...

Re: Shell Resource Leaks

Damn, you're right.
I am seeing this in Windows Explorer. too, in Win10 Pro x64 1903.
I am pretty sure I did not see it in earlier versions of Windows (cannot test right now).

Looks like this might be a new full-blown Windows bug introduced with the May update.

Re: Shell Resource Leaks

Thanks for the bug report. Could you please send me a list of the shell context menu extensions you are using to support@voidtools.com (or post them here) I'll need to reproduce the issue to have any luck in finding the problem. Other than what the default Microsoft ones that ship with Windows, the...

Incorrect/No NTFS hardlink handling

STR: Open Everything Create a test file Verify Everything picked it up and added it to its index Create a hardlink to that file e.g.: mklink /H test.linked.txt test.txt --> Everything does not list the linked file --> Everything does not update the directory size (it's debatable what's the correct b...

Shell Resource Leaks

Not entirely sure what's going on here, but when using the context menu on files, each time Everything.exe seems to span at least one new thread, and that one does not go away. Also, there is a bunch of new handles each time that won't go away either. And I think RuntimeBrowser.exe leaks a few resou...
