Everything does not find files before a certain date

Post by Neinhalt Sieger » Fri Oct 16, 2020 4:31 pm

Hi, I hope you can help me: as the title says, Everything cannot find files on my G: drive before a certain date (although I'm not sure that this is restricted to that drive or it happens even on other drives/paths).

What I mean is that it doesn't find files that are already on that drive, but it finds new files that I created in these few days. The screenshots will explain it better than I can:

I checked the preferences and all my drives are included in the search.

Please make sure no search options are checked under the Search menu (eg: uncheck match case, uncheck match whole words, uncheck regex)

Please make sure the Everything filter is active under the Search menu.

Please make sure these files are not excluded from Tools -> Options -> Exclude.

Please try forcing a rebuild:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Indexes tab on the left.
  • Click Force Rebuild.
  • Click OK.
Please let me know if the issue persists.
