Feature request: Computer name exceptions for auto-include new volumes

Post by pstein » Tue Mar 02, 2021 7:16 am

I am running Everything from an USB flash drive on various computers.

Normally I need an enabled option "Automatically include new fixed volumes" so that partitions from the current computer are automatically included in database.

However on a certain computer (with the computer name "server345") I want to exclude a certain partition from this auto-adding.

Ok, I can manually disable this option whenever I use Everything from USB Flash Drive on this computer and re-enable it at end again.
But this is unconvenient.

What I would appreciate is that I can enable the option "Automatically include new fixed volumes" by default but be able to define
exceptions. These exceptions should be defined by computer names in a new. entry field.
So when Everything notices that it runs on a computer with the name "server345" then this option should be automatically disabled.
However manually adding partitions to database should still be possible.

Can this feature be added in the next release?
Thank you

I will consider adding the option to exclude volumes from Tools -> Options -> Exclude -> Add folder/filter

You will be able to add volume paths or guids to this list and keep "Automatically include new fixed volumes" enabled.

Thank you for your suggestion.

Alternative:

StartEverything like this from a CMD prompt or batchfile:

Code: Select all

x:\path to\Everything.exe -config "%COMPUTERNAME%.INI" -nodb
That way each system has it's own configuration (will be saved on exit)
No database will be written to disk.
