Not really a problem - just a question

Post by Les » Sun Jan 31, 2021 5:33 am

Why is Everything showing multiple files (same name, same size, same folder) when only ONE file with the specified name exists at the location ?
Not a huge problem - but maybe it needs having a look at ? This happens for all other files.

NTFS volumes are automatically indexed by "Everything".

Adding a NTFS volume as a folder index will show duplicated results.

Please remove any NTFS volumes from your folder indexes:
  • In "Everything", from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Folders tab.
  • Select any NTFS volumes and click Remove.
  • Click OK.

To check which NTFS volumes are automatically included:
  • In "Everything", from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the NTFS tab.
  • NTFS volumes that have Include in database checked are already included as a NTFS index.
