hi.
:lol:

a case of explorer crash .

win7

everything-options-indexes-ntfs-disk c:

do not select "monitor changes" of c:

and then

shift+delete one file in c:

for example ,delete permanently J:\Users\USER\Desktop\1.bmp

and then ,wait just 2 minute ,during this 2 munute ,just open webbrowser or do some other things.

and 2 min later ,open everything ,search for this 1.bmp(it will appair in everything because the setting"do not monitor changes of C:")

and click this file in everything ,and ctrl+c it ,

then ctrl+v to paste it onto desktop.

then explorer.exe crash.

It doesn't always happen but it did happen in here
You don't need any indexing,you can just create a file list and delete a file from there
Right clicking on it after that don't show you any menus to copy the file but you can still copy it with Ctrl+C or Edit=>Copy

When you try to paste the file,either nothing will happen or explorer will crash(in my case it didn't actually crash,just the explorer window was closed,not the explorer process)

Thank you for the bug report.

I was able to reproduce the issue here on Windows 7 X64 SP1 with Everything 1.4.1.969.

Everything was storing an uninitialized Item Id List Array on the clipboard when the item did not exist.

Everything 1.4.1.972 should fix the issue.
