Version 1.4.1.895 (x64) does not respect schedule

Post by merlinpimpim » Sat May 26, 2018 1:57 am

The "folders" (settings/indexes/folders) scheduler is not respected when Everything starts: all folders are scanned at startup whatever the schedule set!
I have defined many network shares as "folders", I don't want it to be scanned when Everything starts, but only when schedules are set (most of the time at night).
Ideally, when Everything launches, it should use the previous "folders" indexes (if any), and only rescan them when the scheduler indicates it.

If Everything misses a schedule - for example because your system was not running at that time - Everything will try to rescan as soon as possible (i.e. at the next start of he program)
You can change that behaviour with this INI setting:

Code: Select all

folder_update_rescan_asap=0
And according to he help, this will:
Rescan folders when starting Everything if a scheduled folder rescan was missed.

Set to 1 to rescan immediately. Set to 0 to rescan at the next scheduled time.
To activate this INI setting:
  • Type /folder_update_rescan_asap=0 in the Everything search-bar
  • Press <Enter>
    The statusbar will indicate if this entry was accepted.
To check if the setting is active:
  • Type about:config in the Everything search-bar
  • Press <Enter>
    This will open Everything.ini in your editor
    Note: You can not make changes to your INI file here; they will be lost.
  • Search for "folder_update_rescan_asap"

(So, unless you are seeing this behaviour even when Everything hasn't missed a schedule, this is not a bug, but a user setting)
