Horrible memory leak

Post by kelvinwop » Fri Jul 17, 2020 2:40 am


A memory leak has occurred and Everything is eating up approximately 3MB per second with no upper bound. Restarting the service did not fix the problem.

What a useful report :(
In short no info at all.
Did you restart the PC ?
OS Version and bitness ?
Everything version and bitness ?
Do you use NTFS indexing or Folder Indexing ?

kelvinwop did send me detailed info in an email, thanks kelvinwop .

It looks like this is caused by bitlocker continuously sending a GUID_IO_VOLUME_MOUNT event, where Everything will try to read the bitlocker volume and fail with FVE_E_LOCKED_VOLUME.
Looks like this reading of the locked volume is causing another GUID_IO_VOLUME_MOUNT event?
I have not determined the source of the memory leak yet..

This was a problem with older versions of Everything. I'm unsure what version of Everything kelvinwop is using.
Please make sure you are using the latest version of Everything.

Another option might be to not include your bitlocker drive as a NTFS volume (Tools -> Options -> NTFS) and add it manually as a folder index.. (Tools -> Options -> Folders)
