Progressbar when scanning extern folders needed.

Post by Eddy4321 » Sat Jan 26, 2019 8:01 am

Hello,
I have big extern arcives of data on networkdrives. And I never know when Everything is scannig parts of my archive if the scann will be finished in the next view minutes or if it takes the time till the end of the universe. So I would be very happy if there would be some indicator showing the approximate time.

best regards

eddy ;-)

Current folder indexing status is shown in the folder tab in the Everything options:
  • In Everything, from the Tools menu, click Options.
  • Click the Folders tab on the left.
  • If Everything is updating one of your folders, it will show [Updating...] to the right of the folder name.
Showing this information in the status bar is on my TODO list.

Everything does not show the time remaining, as calculating the time remaining would take longer than doing the actual update.

If you would like to have Everything only update your folder indexes at the set scheduled time, please disable "folder_update_rescan_asap":
  • In Everything, type in the following and press ENTER:
    /folder_update_rescan_asap=0
