To remove your offline external drive from your Everything index:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the NTFS tab on the left.
  • Select your offline external drive.
  • Click Remove.
  • Click OK.

If the external drive is not listed above, please try removing the folder index of your external drive:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Folders tab on the left.
  • Select your offline external drive.
  • Click Remove.
  • Click OK.
