The Index Journal might be useful to undo an accidental move or rename outside of Everything.
Think of the Index Journal as a global file system undo.
I think a user sometimes will want to undo his USER actions.Change journal settings
By default the Index Journal will only store 1MB of changes.
1MB will store about 5000 file changes.
To change the maximum number of items the Index Journal can store:
- In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
- Click the Indexes tab on the left.
- Set a new Maximum Size in KB. (1024 KB is the default)
- Click OK.
and sometimes will want to undo Windows SYSTEM actions.
So I guess the user needs filters (ALL|SYSTEM|USER) to filter the results.
Different indexes for SYSTEM and USER.
Think about a user that wants "undo" for his last 3 weeks actions. He can't select by period of time.
Consider a "Settings..." button in:
1. Index Journal diaog
2. Options > Indexes (tab) > [V]Enable Journal [Settings...]
will open Settings dialog for the Index Journal.
