[Fixed] Date constant: yesterday

Post by tuska »

Hi,

the following search query, namely

Code: Select all

d: dc:yesterday
d: dm:yesterday
brings me files/folders from 14.3. instead of 15.3. on 16.3 with 'Everything' 1.5.0.1243a (x64, x86).

In version Version 1.4.1.1007 (x64) I get files/folders from 15.3.

The number of objects found also differs considerably!

Code: Select all

1.4.1.1007 (x64) : 333 objects
1.5.0.1243a (x64):  57 objects
In a query on 17.3., namely
d: dm:yesterday

there were 2 .ini files with Date Modified 16.3 (OK),
the remaining 55 folders and files had Date Modified 15.3 (NOK).

1.4.1.1007 (x64) : 333 objects files/folders -> Date Modified: 16.3. (OK).

Thanks!

Thank you for the bug report tuska,

Please try the latest Everything 1.5 Alpha.

Version 1.5.0.1244 fixes an issue with negative date offsets.

Thank you for the prompt fix in 'Everything' 1.5.0.1244a (x64, x86)!

Now I get the same number of search hits as in 'Everything' 1.4.1.1007 (x64) for function dc: and dm:
for date constant: yesterday - but...

I did the following tests on 17.3. - here are the results:

Code: Select all

Pt.  Query      	1.4.1.1007 (x64)      1.5.0.1244 (x64)	      1.5.0.1244 (x86)	  Remark
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
1.   D: da:yesterday    1330 objects	      1330 objects	      1 138 objects *	  after "Force Rebuild"
2.   D: dc:yesterday      77 objects		77 objects	         77 objects	  "
3.   D: dm:yesterday     297 objects	       297 objects	        297 objects	  "
---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
* unclear why the number of objects differs between x86 <--> x64 for da:yesterday!

Everything does not track date accessed.

This is a limitation with the USN Journal and thus Everything.
No USN Journal entry is created when a file is accessed.

Date accessed information in Everything is only updated when the file is modified, or when you force a rebuild.
