question about etp server

Post by reanib » Mon Jul 05, 2010 5:50 pm

When searching via ETP server, is it possible to delete and or open files as it is when searching local drives? Love your program -- use it all the time. I don't know what I'd do without it.

Yes, it is possible.

Everything accesses ETP files with \\servername\share\path\filename

Everything is currently hard-coded to use \\servername\C for servers C: drive, \\servername\D for servers D: drive and so on..

If you have full access to \\servername\share you will be able to delete these files, otherwise you will only have read-only access.

Thanks for answering. To clarify, I was looking to be able to delete or open these files within the context menu of Everything when I right click on the file. Currently, when searching attached drive within Everything, I can do this. When searching another computer via ETP, I can not do this. So if I understand correctly, if I have the right access rights to the other computer's files, I should be able to right click within Everything and delete or open these files from the remote computer?
