X: drive Results Display Twice (Are Duplicated)

X: drive Results Display Twice (Are Duplicated)


What I think the deal is...

My X: drive is flaky.

Sometimes it "drops out", disappears...
Hmm... While that does occur, typically a system reboot is needed for the drive to be seen, but I haven't rebooted in quite some time, last system restart was 7-18-2016, so a month ago...

I wonder if I've had duplicate X: results for some time now, but hadn't noticed?
That is very possible, because I typically don't deal with X:...


Anyhow, because the drive has a tendency to drop, I disabled 'Monitor changes' in Indexes -> NTFS.
(Include in database, & Enable USN Journal are left enabled.)


And what seems to have happen at some point 'Automatically include new fixed volumes' must have picked up the drive - again.

I don't recall that having happened before?
Though maybe it did, not sure?


Anyhow, if "X" is (already) included, but not Monitored, if (& if that's what actually happened) X "drops off" (no longer seen as a drive), but at some point the system reboots, at which point X is once again valid, should 'Automatically include' have added X back in a second time?

Code: Select all

ntfs_volume_guids=...,"\\\\.\\X:","\\\\?\\Volume{e2c2021e-4d0e-11e6-a24d-0050ba8bed58}"

ntfs_volume_paths="A:","C:","E:","L:","M:","O:","W:","X:","X:","D:"

Thanks for the bug report.

Everything 1.4.1 parses A: - Z: for NTFS volumes to fix an issue with mounting software not picking up NTFS volumes:
http://www.voidtools.com/forum/viewtopi ... t=5621&e=1
http://www.voidtools.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=5558

Unfortunately, this is picking up your X: before a volume guid is available.

Everything 1.4.1 enables auto remove offline volumes which would temporarily fix the issue.
I may have to force Everything 1.4.1 to default to auto remove offline volumes, because it will continue to use Everything 1.4 settings.

One option would be to remove all the offline X: drives if Everything finds a X: drive that is online, but this would defeat the purpose of auto remove offline volumes option.

I think the best option at this stage is to enable Tools -> Options -> NTFS -> Auto remove offline volumes.

There is no official release yet, 1.4.1 is still being tested internally.
If you wish to have a play with the internal 1.4.1 test, download it here.

1.4.1.724b should ignore fudging the volume guid \\.\X: for volumes that are physical hard drives.
Which should fix your duplicated x: drive results.
