Re: Manually Sync db

This will be possible with the next release of "Everything" by running Everything.exe with the -loaddb and -quit command line options.

You could schedule this with task scheduler or place a shortcut in your start-up folder.

Re: File by ID (as given by CHKDSK)?

"Everything" only keeps file IDs or File Reference Numbers (FRNS) in memory for folders.

You can use the latest alpha release to view folder FRNs.

Although possible, "Everything" does not keep a record of FRNs for files due to large memory requirements.

Re: How stable/resource hungry is Everything (Windows2003 Server

It will still work.

However, you can expect the memory usage to climb over 100mb with over 2 million files.

For a rough guide you can expect roughly 50mb ram usage per 1 million files.

CPU usage should always be minimal, no matter the number of files you have.
