Stop scan

Post by JosephWebber » Thu Jun 20, 2013 9:02 am

Is there any way to stop Everything scanning my drives when I consider it unnecessary?
Many thanks.

If you change any setting under Tools -> Options -> Indexes that would cause a rebuild, Everything will cancel any existing rebuild and start the build process again.

Pressing ESC will cancel a db rebuild (This is not always instant).

Exiting Everything will also cancel a DB rebuild.

Certain actions can cause the DB to lock, in which case you will have to wait for the rebuild to complete.
