subst drives?

Post by yaruk » Thu Aug 26, 2010 10:08 pm

can everything search subst drives?

if not, then is it the case that subst drives and network drives, are not NTFS and so it can't currently.

and should I set up an "ETP server"?

I suppose in theory, even for network drives, if everything is on the server, then it could do its search, and an everywhere on the client could get the list...

subst drives shouldn't really be a problem though when they point locally and they always or may as well always do so.

I have added subst drive support for the next release.

You might like to test this now with the latest alpha release.

Subst drives will work on if the redirected drive points to the root of another drive.
For example, the following should work with
subst D: h:\
subst E: F:\
The following will not work with
subst D: f:\somefolder
subst H: P:\other\folder

Please keep in mind that "Everything" will only index local NTFS volumes.
A subst drive that points to a mapped network drive will not work.
