Feature to view last modified files

Post by vinodkk1 » Fri Jul 03, 2009 8:23 am

It would be great to have a feature to view the last accessed files .It is partially achievable with a sort on date in the existing functioanlity ,but sorting but date/time on the entire database set throws up a warning (which is quite valid in fact) . You could have a small pane with a list of last accessed files ..This feature would be extremely useful to quickly find files that were accidentally moved or to monitor files that are getting modified .

Thanks

The last access time, size and other file information is for sorting the results after a search.
It was not designed to sort all files and folders.

I am currently working on a fast last modified time column that will instantly list all recently modified files and folders by date from the USN Change Journal.

This will only sort file and folder changes in the last week depending on the size on the USN Journal.

That would be really good feature . Would it be possible to give an option to sort files by last access time/modified time whenever 'everything' is opened up ..Looking forward to the next beta

Yes, "Everything" will remember the current sort across restarts for the next release of "Everything".
