has been scanning/indexing for days

Post by artie » Fri Apr 12, 2019 12:26 am

I installed everything a couple of days back, and added a drive for it to index, other colleagues have indexed the same drive very quickly but for me it has been scanning and indexing for days now. I removed the folder and added a couple of times. no improvements, what would be the next step? help is appreciated. thank you.

What type of drive are you trying to add? is it a removable drive / network drive?

Please try exiting Everything, deleting your Everything.db and restarting Everything:
  • Exit Everything (right click the Everything system tray icon and click Exit)
  • In Windows Explorer, navigate to:
  • Delete your Everything.db
  • Restart Everything.
