Duplicate Filename Line Items Displayed When None Exist

Post by RetiredEngineer » Mon Mar 09, 2015 12:55 pm

Hi everyone.

I'm new to Everything and displaying duplicates when none exist (see attached screen shot). Am I doing something wrong, or is this a temporarily fixable bug?

Your C: drive is NTFS formatted & you're letting Everything index that normally?
And did you also set up a File LIst (or similar) for your C: drive?

If so, that would cause duplications to display.

Yes

No

If so, that would cause duplications to display.
Where can I find documentation on setting up a File List?

Please make sure you do not have a duplicated folder indexes:
  • In "Everything", from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Folders tab.
  • Remove all folder indexes.
  • Click OK.
Your C: is automatically indexed as a NTFS index.
