Everything crashes (related to SageThumbs.dll ?)

Post by blaq » Thu Feb 28, 2019 5:57 pm

My C: drive was full when I logged in. Search Everything (SE) crashed and its window disappeared. Even though I have cleared about 20 GB of space on my system drive, SE still crashes:
  • Start SE
  • SE displays "Loading database", then "Updating dabatase".
  • It then populates its default file list and shows the number of files in the status bar.
  • Then crashes without user intervention.
  • If I activate the debug mode console, it unfortunately disappears when the main window does the same.
Event Viewer shows:

Code: Select all

Faulting application name: Everything.exe, version:, time stamp: 0x5c57c179
Faulting module name: SageThumbs.dll, version:, time stamp: 0x59117264
Exception code: 0xc0000409
Fault offset: 0x0000000000029c23
Faulting process id: 0x1d48
Faulting application start time: 0x01d4cf8c3097863d
Faulting application path: C:\Program Files\_File\Everything\Everything.exe
Faulting module path: C:\Program Files (x86)\_UI\SageThumbs\64\SageThumbs.dll
Report Id: 255c0b58-f415-4561-96a8-68fb75979194
Faulting package full name: 
Faulting package-relative application ID: 
What's my next step? Thanks.

Your database (Everything.db) might be corrupted. Delete it and start Everything again. That will build a fresh database.

1. Make sure Everything isn't running:
- right-click the Everything icon in the system tray (if available) and choose Exit.

2. Delete Everything.db.
Depending on your settings, most likely places are either in the folder where Everything.exe is located or in your profile (c:\users\blaq\AppData\Local\Everything\everything.db)

If that doesn't fix the issue: The files on your harddisk might be corrupted.
To anayze/fix this:
- right-click C:\ in File Explorer
- Choose properties
- Activate the Tools tab
- Click Check

Do you have Everything in thumbnail view? (View -> Thumbnails or View -> Details?)

Please try disabling thumbnails in Everything:
  • Complete exit Everything (right click the Everything system tray icon and click Exit)
  • Open your %APPDATA%\Everything\Everything.ini
  • Change the following line:
  • Save changes and restart Everything.

Thanks for the suggestions; I'll know where to look for them if Everything crashes in the future. Right now, Everything works fine. (I did reboot)

Thanks again for your help.
