Unload File List when corresponding Hard Disks are attached

Postby XerxesD » Mon Nov 13, 2017 2:04 pm

Hello.
I keep file lists of my External Hard Drives and keep them loaded in Everything.
When I attach a hard disk(contents of which are loaded as a file list too), there are two duplicates of all the Hard Disk files in Everything.
Could there be a way to "unload" the file list when the Hard Disk is attached? I am aware that I could keep a portable Everything for my File Lists but I would prefer everything in one application.
Thank you.

Like stamimail suggested, create a filter to search for:
!filelistfilename:.
to exclude your file lists.

or

Please consider using folder indexing instead of file lists and disabling "Auto include fixed/removable NTFS volumes":
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the NTFS tab on the left.
  • Uncheck Automatically include fixed NTFS volumes.
  • Uncheck Automatically include removable NTFS volumes.
  • Click OK.

I have on my TODO list to hide duplicated results.

Thank you! @Stamimail @void
The !filelistfilename:. filter works perfectly.
