Windows 10 - Version 1.3.4.686 (x86) .Lnk Roaming

Post by Ritchievalens » Sun Feb 03, 2019 2:27 am

Hi Folks

I have recently had a problem with a File search.
I know the File is there, but it only shows up the .LNK File

This is on my E: drive

What I have tried already.
1. Rebuild Database
2. Rebuilt USN Journal
3. Used 32bit and 64bit Version
4. Used Windows SFC command to see if I have a Disk corruption
5. I re-did Windows indexing in the Control Panel
6. I reset all the Everything options.

Any ideas Please?

Thanks

Please make sure no search options are enabled under the Search menu.

Please make sure this file is not excluded under Tools -> Options -> Exclude.

Please try the latest version of Everything as Everything 1.3 can miss changes to your NTFS volumes and does not index all hard links.

Hi Void
Let me try those options.

I would be pleased if that fixes it.

Thankyou

Hi Void

I have updated this App, and also dome what you have suggested.

If I click on the .DOC File, it creates an .Lnk and sees that in the search
It dosnt see .DOC Files

Could you please check to see if your E: drive is indexed:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the NTFS tab on the left.
  • Is your E: drive listed?
  • If it is listed, please make sure Include in database is checked.
  • If it is not listed:
    • Click the Folders tab on the left.
    • Click Add....
    • Select your E: drive and click OK.
    • Click OK.
    • Everything will do a quick re-index, does your doc file show up now?

Thankyou Void

That seems to work.
I have used everything for years and really didn't want to switch.
I will keep you updated.

What exactly is Regex, as I had to switch that off?

Do you have a Donation page please?

Regex, or regular expressions is a search method that defines search patterns.
