While this makes it easy to get a date/time range, it is difficult to get all files modified in October of any year. Or between 09:00 and 17:00.
One way to work around this limitation is to load Everything data in Excel and manipulate it from there, as described here
This is another way to accomplish that.
The basic idea is to (1) search for files in Everything, (2) export the results as a filelist (.EFU file), (3) load that file in a separate utility, (4) filter by time/month/ whatever and (5) load the filtered data back in Everything.
Probably sounds complicated, but is quite easy (my opinion, of course) :
As an example: I want all .exe files in the Windows folder that were last modified:
- Before 2020
- In December
- In a weekend (Saturday or Sunday)
- Between 23:00 and 07:00
- Search for c:\windows\ ext:exe dm:<2020
- Export the results as a .EFU file
- In File Explorer, drag and drop that file on Drop your EFU file here.cmd
- In the new window that opens, click the Add criteria
- Fill in the fields, so I end up with this:
- Important: Select all files (CTRL+A)
- Press the OK button
- And now a new Everything window will open with the files that match the previously mentioned time criteria
- That's all
How to install:
Extract the 2 files in the attachd Zip-file to a folder.
- Will detect where your Everything.exe is, based on where the Everything service is running from.
Don't use this if you are running Everything as administrator[/] or if you run Everything with the -instance command-line option.
If you are running an Everything instance and want to use this, please let me know adn I will add support for that. Will not add support for running as administrator.
- Requires Windows10, because of the recent PowerShell functionality.
