Where is 'everything.db' stored? (build 413)

Post by burgundy » Fri Oct 16, 2009 11:20 am


I'm using the last beta of Everything ( but can't find the file everything.db. I scanned my drives but everything.db is not there even when Everything is running.

Can anyone advise please.

Thank you.

"Everything" should store the Everything.db in the same location as the Everything.exe

However, there is an issue with builds 413-436 and storing the Everything.db.
These versions unintentionally use the current working directory, which could be anywhere..

Try setting the database location to a new location.

To change the database location:
  • In "Everything", from the Tools menu, click Options.
    Click the Volumes tab.
    Set the Database location to C:\Program Files\Everything
    Click OK.
This issue has been fixed for the next release.
