Mobile Phone Index Filing: Impressed

Post by Flourgrader » Tue Jun 08, 2021 8:21 am

Hi,
I just connected my mobile phone to my PC and
using Everything ver 1.5.0.1263a(x64).
I managed to Index my storage system on the phone.
Both Internal and external memory.
I think windows does it by using a protocol called “Media Device MPT”.
Does Everything use the same Method?
The reason I ask, is that not a lot of software is developed to access mobile phones filing system,
and if it is, it does not work well from my experience.
Are there any know gremlins in Everything in connecting to mobile devices?
Or is it very robust in your opinion?

Everything uses IShellFolder::EnumObjects to scan your virtual file systems.

Everything uses SHChangeNotifyRegister to watch the virtual folder for changes.

There are no known issues.
If you find any issues, please let me know.

I have seen some performance issues (slow indexing), which mostly come down to poor USB speeds and slow IShellFolder::EnumObjects implementations.

There are some file operations that may not work yet (such as Edit -> Move to Folder)
