Rescan Folders on different intervals

Post by usbpc » Fri Jan 08, 2021 8:00 pm

I'd like to set different intervals for rescanning for different folder.

If that is not possible, I'd also be happy to have a command line option for telling Everything to manually rescan a specific folder, that way I could script my desired interval.

Is any of these things possible?

All NTFS formatted local disks are updated in real-time, so I assume you are talking about FAT(32) or network disks?

In that case, you can add folders separately.
Let's assume you have an X:-drive with folders X:\Music and x:\Movies. You can now add each of them separately through Menu:Tools > Options > Indexes > Folders

(and remove the original X:\ folder)

Yea thanks. It just does that normally, I didn't notice that every seperatly added folder has it's own settings.

This day was too long. :D
