Offline Files

Post by ms264556 » Tue Dec 26, 2017 10:56 am

I have Everything running as a service, and it discovers all of my offline files (C:\Windows\CSC\v2.0.6\namespace\[UncPathToFile]), which is great!
Unfortunately, my user account doesn't have permission to access these files directly, so I have to note their location and then manually open them.

It would be great if Everything could understand Offline Files folder structure, and open the files from the network location; or let me configure some sort of mapping table manually for this purpose.

I just want to second this request. Being able to not only find but access offline files would be the single most useful improvement to this wonderful software.

I ran across another topic which shows how to do this.

If anyone else is trying to automatically map offline files for a few mapped drives then you can follow the "Allow custom remapping of file paths" instructions at viewtopic.php?t=5933#p17001. So, for my case where I had parts of a "Home" H: drive and a "Projects" P: drive pinned, my Everything.ini additions/changes (highlighted) were:-

auto_remove_offline_ntfs_volumes=0

ntfs_volume_guids="\\\\?\\Volume{C DRIVE GUID}","\\\\?\\Volume{C DRIVE GUID}","\\\\?\\Volume{C DRIVE GUID}"
ntfs_volume_paths="C:","H:\\","P:\\"
ntfs_volume_roots="","Windows\\CSC\\v2.0.6\\namespace\\{H DRIVE ROOT UNC PATH}","Windows\\CSC\\v2.0.6\\namespace\\{P DRIVE ROOT UNC PATH}"
ntfs_volume_includes=1,1,1
ntfs_volume_load_recent_changes=0,0,0
ntfs_volume_include_onlys="","",""
ntfs_volume_monitors=1,1,1

exclude_folders="c:\\Windows\\CSC\\v2.0.6\\namespace\\{H DRIVE ROOT UNC PATH}","c:\\Windows\\CSC\\v2.0.6\\namespace\\{P DRIVE ROOT UNC PATH}"

Works great!
