Index This

Post by NotNull » Mon Apr 09, 2018 9:38 am

What's this
Choose IndexThis from the context-menu of a folder or drive to have it indexed in a separate, temporary database.
Comes in handy with external USB-disks, network folders, etc.

How it works:
When you choose IndexThis from the context-menu, a new instance of Everything will be started with specific settings for this folder/drive. It will index it - using NTFS indexing on local NTFS filesystem; folder-indexing on other filesystems (no ReFS support) - and load the results in memory. Only memory; database will not be written to disk.

Isntallation
  • Put attached CMD script in a folder somewhere on your system
  • In the script, change the path to Everything.exe to match your system. Currently:
    set EverythingEXE=C:\Program Files\Everything\Everything.exe
  • Start the script (by double-clicking it in Explorer, for example)
  • Choose [ i ] from the menu (Install).
  • Done.
Now you can right-click a drive or folder to index it:

Updated version:
  • Use a different detection method of NTFS filesystem that doesnt require admin rights
  • Check if Everything service is running (needed for NTFS indexing)
The zipfile is in the original post (removed the old version)

Same here: corrupted.
I think something went wrong when moving to the new webhoster (tested downloading another zipfile: also corrupted)

Will upload a fresh version.
New version uploaded.

BTW: Wow, no idea there was any interest in this. You made my day :D
