Re: Everything not indexing every file, problem seems to be especially with text and spreadsheet files

Everything should not be missing changes to NTFS volumes. I think I've finally figured out when this happens. Let me run this scenario by you. What happens when there are a LOT of changes, as in a build-to-build Win10 upgrade, which I do practically every week with Win10 Insider? Afterwards, and no...

Re: Is Windows coming around to the Everything way of doing things?

The new indexing, what they're referring to as "Find my files," only indexes file system metadata, which they say is up to 100x faster than file content indexing. That's what I was referring to. It also automatically excludes OS files and temp areas. Windows still does have its traditional indexing,...

Re: Search History - Is there a new planning?

Great find, gdv! I often forget about that file (not everything in Everything can go in the UI, though I think that one can).

There have been other gems too, like "hide_on_close=1", which will retain your last search results in the Everything window instead of clearing it every time.

While Everything is not running, try making a folder eg: foobar and see if it shows up in the index after a -reindex.
It does, so that must have been it! That never would have occurred to me.

Hi. I noticed "improved -update -exit" in the beta release notes, which probably fixes the items you had mentioned above.
