Ask to index a drive

Post by 0xDEADC0DE » Mon Jun 29, 2020 9:05 am

I had to clone a damaged SSD and it took my 2 days to find out that Everything was blocking Windows and the drive from functioning normally.
To not automatically index new drives is uncomfortable, I would suggest to add another option.
If a new drive is found, ask if it should be indexed.
You could add 4 options in the dialog
( ) Yes
( ) Yes + Remember
( ) No
( ) No + Remember


( ) Yes
( ) No
[ ] Remember

If you select to remember your choice, you could save the GUID of the GPT or other infos so you can remember the drive.

I'll consider the option to prompt the user to add new volumes.
Thanks for the suggestion.

I would like to add an option where Everything only indexes volumes at the time of installation. New volumes would have to be manually added.
