Everything listing ?

Postby wdc » Sun Dec 31, 2017 2:32 pm

I recently installed the Everything search app on my W10 desktop and am wondering at what I am seeing. I'd appreciate some explanation. In particular:

When I click the "Everything" label in my applications tray I view a long listing of folders like this one:

Local Site C:|Users\801\Local\Google|Chrom... 97K 12-31-2017 9:23

The list seems to be continuously self-generating, adding another item roughly every 15 seconds, with hundreds from this morning alone.

What is it Everything is doing? Is this what's called indexing?
Is there a document I can read that describes in a general way just how Everything works?

Thanks. ...wdc

From http://voidtools.com/support/everything ... everything:

".... An index of all your local NTFS volumes is created when running Everything for the first time.
Indexing can take a few seconds.
Once the indexing stage is complete, All your files will be displayed.
Type in a partial filename in the search box at the top to begin..."

Probably your list is sorted by "Date Modified". Then it gives the recent changes in your system.
You might want to sort it by Name to get the view you're expecting for.
