shallow handling of network shares

Post by amorpheus » Tue Oct 09, 2018 6:16 pm

After setting up my new file server at home I realized that my folder structure is very shallow, and had an idea: it would be cool if I could set Everything to monitor a certain depth of the folders in the network share for changes, or configure it to do a "shallow" refresh at a faster interval, going deeper in any parts that changed. Would there be some merit to this?

Maybe an option to exclude a path from the folder update?
eg: exclude path when updating: D:\downloads\some deep folder\don't update this subfolder

Thanks for the suggestion.

Also: the settings dialog in Menu:Tools > Options > Indexes > Folder are per folder
Click on each folder and you can configure a schedule for that folder, like:

Yeah, I know I could set up more folders, but setting a faster schedule that way would still "dig deep" for anything in that tree.

Although it's an interesting thought to set up additional folders on a faster schedule if I think I need it in certain places. Thanks!

Oops! This was posted in the wrong thread :oops: No idea how that happened.

It should be posted in this one!

But as that is also your thread, you'll have to read it here :) (too much trouble moving it..)
