Partial Listings - Windows 8

Post by arch » Tue Jan 15, 2013 7:35 pm

Environment: Windows 8 Enterprise (Version 6.2 Build 9200) joined to AD - OS File Explorer configured to show all files (incl. system) & extensions.
Everything Version 1.3.0.632b (portable & specifically run as admin)

Using cmd dir /s particular system revealed 150544 objects (files & folders), Everything revealed only 134927 objects (files and folders).

Good example is to search for iexplore.exe

Everything returns no hits for either:

c:\program files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe
or
c:\program files (x86)\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe

Command prompt and File Explorer show these in fact do exist.

Also tested w/ same results in Everything 1.2.1.371 portable and full install, run separately as admin (also logged in as admin) with identical results.

Note: Tested this on a separate machine (brand new HP w/ default Win8 - joined to AD) - experienced identical issue.

"Everything" will not include the following files:
  • Hard links.
  • Orphaned files or folders (files or folders with no parent folder).
Please check your drives for errors.

c:\program files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe is most likely a hard link.
The real file is usually stored in c:\Windows\winsxs\wow64...

Please try indexing c:\program files and c:\windows with folder indexing if you need these hard links indexed.

True.

Code: Select all

E:\Windows\winsxs\amd64_microsoft-windows-i..etexplorer-optional_31bf3856ad364e35_9.4.8112.16457_none_0d3a2c93807c765c\iexplore.exe
E:\Program Files\Internet Explorer\iexplore.exe
(Those two dots, windows-i..etexplorer, are just as it is.)

Please try indexing c:\program files and c:\windows with folder indexing if you need these hard links indexed.
Could you explain further?
Ah, Options | Indexes | Folders
