mapped 10Gb network drive

Post by rickvdvulkaan » Wed Jan 27, 2021 3:00 pm

Hello!

I just heard about the everything tool, and i'm very exited to try it out. when i installed the latest version, i was immediately impressed how fast it felt in combination with my local SSD.

My bigger goal however is to create a workflow in combination with my NAS. (eventually to search video, with tags, not sure though about how to create the tags but that will come later). This is a qnap 12 bay, 120TB in raid5. It's connected with a 10Gb atto PCI card.

When i go to tools -> options -> folders -> add, i cannot see my mapped drive (Z:), which i can see in the windows explorer, and almost every other app. I found a few topics here explaining a possible solution, like uncheck the "run as administrator" checkbox, but that did not have any effect.

Any other idea's?

I also have the Qnap connected to a standard 1Gb connection, so as a workaround i now added the folder manually from the network folders, but i think this will connect to the server from the slower connection. Not sure if this will make a big difference in search speed (it's still scanning, gonna take a while i guess), but i'm pretty sure it will eventually create issues when working with the video when referring to the slower connection.

"Drive mapping is user context based" so if you're using different Users... (similar to how running "As Administrator" is a different user...).

Everything will be unable to see your mapped network drives if you are running Everything as an administrator.

Please try running Everything as a standard user:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the General tab on the left.
  • Check Everything service.
  • Uncheck Run as administrator.
  • Click OK.
  • Exit Everything (right click the Everything tray icon and click Exit).
  • Restart Everything.
To add your mapped network drive to your Everything index:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Folders tab.
  • Click Add....
  • Select your mapped network drive and click OK.
  • Click OK.
If you are unable to select your mapped network drive, please try manually adding your mapped network drive:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Folders tab.
  • Click Add....
  • Manually type in your mapped network drive (eg: J: ) and click OK.
  • Click OK.

Thanks, that was helpful. Never thought of manually typing in the adress(stupid me)
The drive letter by itself didn't work though, I eventually typed the local adress of the server (\\10.1.0.x\...), and that worked fine

thanks again. great stuff!

This likely means Everything is still running as an administrator.

To confirm:
  • In Everything, type in the following search and press ENTER:
    /debug
At the top of the newly shown debug console should be the following line:
IsAdmin x
where x is 1 for running as an admin, and 0 for running as a standard user.

To close the debug console:
  • In Everything, type in the following search and press ENTER:
    /debug
I recommend running Everything as a standard user:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the General tab on the left.
  • Check Everything service.
  • Uncheck Run as administrator.
  • Click OK.
  • Exit Everything (right click the Everything tray icon and click Exit).
  • Restart Everything.
or, to run Everything as a standard user:
  • Right click your Everything.exe or a shortcut to Everything
  • Click Properties.
  • Click the Compatibility tab.
  • Uncheck Run this program as an administrator.
  • Click OK.
