Opening files or directories, via ETP..

Post by yaruk » Mon Sep 13, 2010 5:45 pm

Hi,

The ETP feature is great..for finding files..

but unfortunately I see it can't offer opening files, or opening paths..

are there any plans on implementing that?

It'd be such a useful and intuitive feature..since the local everything does it..

TIA

Unfortunately, "Everything" uses the hard coded share names:

Code: Select all

\\server\drive letter
For example, the C: drive would be accessed with:

Code: Select all

\\server\c
I have implemented support for accessing files via the ftp server and admin shares.
With the latest alpha you can specify the use of ftp links when connecting to a ETP server.

To enable admin shares with the latest alpha:
  • In "Everything", from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the View tab.
  • From the Advanced settings, in the General folder, Check Use administrator shares for ETP connections.
  • Click OK.
I am also considering implementing a samba server for file access for a future release.
