Re: Disable update

Updating in the background is in development. So I disabled the database compression and moved the database to a ramdisk and it loads in about 1 second, before it was 5-10(compressed on the ramdisk, otherwise about 30 seconds or even longer). The tooltip says that compressing the database would loa...

Re: Disable update

I switched everything over to use folders. I had to exclude 20 drives manually and I'll have to exclude more when I bring them online but I guess it's better than nothing.

Custom Database copy

I use a 32GB ramdisk. It would be nice if evrything could copy the database to the ramdisk on startup and then copy it back to the original location when shut down. This would speed up things greatly. I noticed my drive thrashes quite a bit when scrolling through the files(it even vibrates my desk)....

Avoid special chars in general search

when I enter search string is there any way to set certain chars to ignore so I don't have to explicitly specify them? I'm talking about things like !, ),(,. _, -, etc (and of course spaces). This.Is.Some-Filename_example.pdf I would like to search just "is some filename" and it match. I still would...

Re: Disable update

I really don't want it to update at all except when I trigger it. I want to completely disable updating except when I force it manually.

Re: Ignore duplicates

(Again, not what you're wanting, but, Show exactly one copy of each filename? And further off the track, Question: Comparing drives/folders for files . Anyhow, a unique: might not be a bad idea, if it is doable.) It is not hard to do. A few lines of code. Some way to set an option to ignore duplica...

Disable update

Every time I start I everything takes a little while to load. It usually says updating. I don't really need it to update the database. I assume it is scanning the drives for changes. I thought I saw in the options how to disable updates but I can't find it. I don't want it to scan for updates except...

Re: Ignore duplicates

If you know dupes are kept on particular drives, you can exclude those drives !Z: . You can excludes dupes, !dupe: or !sizedupe: . (Note that dupe: [sizedupe:] are global in scope.) You can set up a Filter, say a NO-DUP Filter, that is an Everything filter - except that excludes dupes. So you can s...

Ignore duplicates

I have a lot of duplicates because I 1. Have some nearly duplicate drives(backup but there are differences). 2. Sometimes use junctions to link different drives. This unfortunately causes a ton of duplicates in everything. I have over 10M files and probably 1/3 are duplicates. Can we not have a simp...
