Problems by query execution order (In ADS-related queries)

Post by brandySnake »

There seems to be a case that ADS-related query results are always empty.
The preconditions and procedures for reproduction are described below.
Confirmed reproduction in the 1343a, and previous versions.

NOTE: <<TARGET_STREAM_NAME>> in the command is a placeholder. Replace with any actual name.


## Overview
Whenever a query is executed in the following order, the query result in order 2. will be empty.
When executed in a different order, the results are displayed correctly.


## Prerequisite
  • /property_alternate_data_stream_utf8=Custom Property 0=<<TARGET_STREAM_NAME>>
  • /custom_property_0=<<TARGET_STREAM_NAME>>

## Query order
  1. File/Folder where target ADS name exists.
    custom_property_0:
  2. File/Folder with empty target ADS name contents.
    alternate_data_stream_names:<<TARGET_STREAM_NAME>> !custom_property_0:

Thank you for the issue report.

Everything is not adding results correctly with !custom_property_0: when the information is not cached.

I'll have a fix soon.

Thank you for your reply and confirming the reproduction.

It's not serious, but it was strange behavior, and I'm glad to see it fix in the future.
Also, I'm glad that the problem was communicated well.

Everything 1.5.0.1344a fixes an issue with ! searches not adding results as information is gathered.
