Not saving some NTFS preferences

Post by rogeriodec » Fri Sep 13, 2019 1:51 pm

I have a backup script to an external USB HDD (h:).
When the backup is finished, I can't dismount this drive.
The USB Safely Remove program shows that Everything is blocking this drive:

But I have previously unselected all options for this drive in Options -> Index -> NTFS:

However, Everything is not keeping the "Enable USN Journal" unchecked. After applying the uncheck and opening the preferences again, it is showing checked again:

This way Everything seems to block this drive constantly.

Thanks for the bug report.

Everything will automatically create the USN Journal if you have Monitor changes enabled.
I see you have this setting disabled.

The USN Journal can also be recreated by other software or Windows itself.

There could be a pending delete on the USN Journal. Restarting your PC should complete the USN Journal deletion.
