Search by time creation only without date on a NAS

Post by JC2 »

Hello the experts,

My case is this one:

I have a folder, with hundred of subfolders how contain a lot of snapshots (photo) taken by day by 3 cameras.


I want to find all the snapshots how was taken between 12:00:00 and 12:03:09 for exemple, directly from the main folder.

or

Find one snapshot taken at 12:01:07 for exemple in all subfolders

or

Find one snapshot taken between 12:00:00 and 13:00:00 in all subfolders

After one of this research, the result'll be sort by day

Then, I'll copy-paste all the snapshots to make a film (quick motion) to see the building of my house for exemple;

Any idea to help me?

I've tried 3 days to find the solution but I haven't find it.

Thank you in advance :idea:

Everything is designed to search for year-month-day hour:minute:second


I want to find all the snapshots how was taken between 12:00:00 and 12:03:09 for exemple, directly from the main folder.

Code: Select all

"c:\main\folder\*" (HOUR($date-taken:)*60*60)+(MINUTE($date-taken:)*60)+(SECOND($date-taken:))>=(12*60*60)+(0*60)+(0) (HOUR($date-taken:)*60*60)+(MINUTE($date-taken:)*60)+(SECOND($date-taken:))<=(12*60*60)+(3*60)+(9)
(converts time to total seconds and compares total seconds >=12:00:00 and <=12:03:09)

I think Everything needs a Time Taken property..


Find one snapshot taken at 12:01:07 for exemple in all subfolders
"c:\main\folder\" HOUR($date-taken:)==12 MINUTE($date-taken:)==01 SECOND($date-taken:)==07


Find one snapshot taken between 12:00:00 and 13:00:00 in all subfolders
"c:\main\folder\" HOUR($date-taken:)==12



I recommend the following search to find one snapshot per day:

"c:\main\folder\" HOUR($date-taken:)==12 a:=formatfiletime($date-taken:,"YYYYMMDD") distinct:a



Add the Date Taken column (Result List Column Header -> Right click -> Add Columns...)
Click the Date Taken column column header to sort by Date Taken.

For exemple:

An idea why it doesn't work?

Thank you

Everything 1.4 doesn't have the option to search for just time.

If you would like to search for time, please check out the Everything 1.5 alpha

Everything 1.5.0.1368a adds support for searching time with ISO8601 and wildcards.


Syntax:

YYYY-MM-DDTHH:mm:ss
*-*-*T*:*:*



You can combine *-*-* into a single *



Example usage:

date-taken:*-02
date-taken:*T9:00..*T17:00
date-taken:*-12-31

Can this use for example date-taken:*-12-31 (for all files which have date taken Dec 31, YYYY for all years) ?

edit: nvm answered my own question. Sorry

Yes, all date search functions will support ISO8601 wildcards.
