Unable to add Google Drive stream to Everything

Post by Marceepoo » Mon Mar 29, 2021 10:42 pm

I opened Everything, Options, Folders.
Then I tried to add my G drive, which is my Google Drive Stream Drive, by browsing for a folder.
I scrolled down to my G drive and tried to select it, or alternatively, to select a subdirectory.
But when I either left clicked, or right clicked and selected Expand, I got an error message:
Location is not available.
G:\ is not accessible.
Access is denied.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Is Everything running as an administrator?

Please try running Everything as a standard user:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the General tab on the left.
  • Check Everything service.
  • Uncheck Run as administrator.
  • Click OK.
  • Exit Everything (right click the Everything tray icon and click Exit).
  • Restart Everything.

And to run Everything as a standard user:
  • Right click your Everything.exe or a shortcut to Everything
  • Click Properties.
  • Click the Compatibility tab.
  • Uncheck Run this program as an administrator.
  • Click OK.

And also to run Everything as a standard user:
  • Right click your shortcut to Everything
  • Click Properties.
  • Click the Shortcut tab.
  • Click the Advanced button.
  • Uncheck Run as administrator.
  • Click OK.
  • Click OK.

Does the issue persist?
