Automated network search to file

Post by Steve10 » Mon Feb 11, 2013 11:36 am

I'm new to Everything :) but see it as a possible solution to a particular task.

I need to search for particular file types that are located on laptops in specific folders that only connect via VPN in-frequently.

What I have considered is using a group policy to kick of everything.exe or es.exe using the command line to select particular file extensions then send to a log file preferable on the network. Dont worry about how I kick this off with GPO as I already know but I need the command to perform the specific search and generate the output. I can install Everything ETP server on all laptops if required.

First of all is this possible and if so how?

Any help will be appreciated.

For example, to generate a log of all your txt files with the Everything command line tool:

Code: Select all

es.exe *.txt > textfiles.txt
Please note you will need to run Everything in order to use the Everything command line tool.
