searching "unusual" details

Post by dme » Thu Jun 07, 2018 2:55 pm

Aha! Now I get it. https://www.voidtools.com/support/everything/indexes/
By default, "Everything" indexes all local fixed NTFS volumes.

Indexes can be customized in the Everything options.
More specifically:
Everything indexes file size and date modified by default.
"Unusual" details--limited to
  • file size
  • folder size
  • date created
  • date modified
  • date accessed
  • attributes

Currently, Everything does not index, search or display these extended columns.

I've added all these columns for the next version of Everything.
I am still reviewing keeping this as most of them are not very useful or don't report any information at all.

Here's a short list of columns I will most likely be including with the next version:
  • Size on Disk - GetCompressedFileSize
  • File/Product Version - GetFileVersionInfo
  • Width - image width, video width.
  • Height - image height, video height
  • Channels - Audio channel count
  • Audio Bit rate - Audio encoding bitrate.
  • Video Bit Rate - Video bitrate
  • Total bit rate - audio + video bitrate.
  • sample rate - audio eg: 44 Khz
  • sample size - audio eg: 16 bit
  • title - audio / video / image
  • subject - image
  • subtitle - audio / video
  • rating - audio / video / image
  • tags - video / image
  • comments - audio / video / image
  • contributing artists - audio
  • album artists - audio
  • album - audio
  • year - audio
  • # - audio track
  • genre - audio
  • length - audio / video
  • authors - images / eml
  • EXIF
  • IPTC
  • FRN

hello void,

i read this topic and these adds are very useful and promising, thumb up.

however, i reached here by web-search because i wanted to find old photos i took years ago by my "iphone 3gs"

i hope you also add the ability to index or search for "camera" as extended properties.

it will be very helpful in finding and organizing old bulky photos folders.

thank you for ur great work.

My wish-list for video:

codec
creators
frame rate


about exif, do you plan to make all exif searchable? If not, location and camera model is my top candidates!

I just love Everything, thank you for an extraordinary product!

Of course these columns will be optional and not shown by default.
Same with indexing, indexing will be optional and disabled by default.

As a long time user of the standard Windows Search - I am impressed by the functionality and speed that Everything brings to the user. A while ago I started using the File Meta Association Manager to extend the property handler associated with a certain file extension. Now, I am looking for an option to track down the tagged files more effectively. Hence, my question: Is the upcoming version of Everything going to support the search of the extended metadata -- e.g. tags for, lets say, .pdf, .docx and .png?

Hi. Am new here. Everything is brilliant, especially for the file hoarder me.

Anyway, related to this thread (forgive me if i should create a new one-please let me know and i'll re do it)
I have a little question about the search syntax, precedence, wildcards and handling spaces.

If i give an example of the file details, mainly related to .mp3 tags. I have many, many GB of music from UK charts. They all have album information in the following format Official Top 40 01-07-2011

i need to locate all of the files that have contain Official Top 40 in the album column and dont want to limit to specific date.
In windows search i would type Album:"Top 40" the results are returned corrcectly. I realise that Everything does not index content, but can someone give an example string to help me please? I've tried a lot of permutations but i'm either only getting the filename which contains the word album or i'm getting 0 results.

using the album: function
Where would i put the * wildcard for albums that contain spaces? Strings with spaces need to be enclosed in quotes, right? :?:

album:"*Top 40*" produces no results.
album:*"Top 40"* produces no results.
album:*top also brings other files album name which are not desired. such as top of the pops or top summer hits etc

.What is the precedence when using wildcards * and literal strings " "? :?:

. Should i be using the AND operator (space) ? :?:
<album:Top album:40> ??
Thank you for any tips on how to achieve this.
Also, will Everything GUI include those alternative column headers, such album, contributing artist etc?

UPDATE: <album:Top album:40> is the correct syntax and works like a charm!! Awesome. :D

also, here's a quick and nasty powershell snippet for renaming files that have digits at the front of filename. obviously, change the file extension and number of characters in the substring argument to meet your own circumstances.

note. in the case of resultant duplicate filesnames, you will get an error and needs to be run again...
:!: DANGER:. DO NOT RUN THIS MORE THAN ONCE without moving the renamed files to a new location or your files names will keep getting shorter lol :lol:

gci *.mp3 | rename-item -newname { [string]($_.name).substring(2) }

i'll work on it to auto move renamed files out. I've just not had the time yet. :roll: feel free to share any improvements.

Looks like, album:"top 40", should do it.

(Never particularly knew album: or some of those other "tag" searches existed.)

I might need to update my version then lol. i'm not getting what i was hoping for. i'm only a couple of releases behind.
What did work EXACTLY as i wanted it was the grouping < >and the AND. Thus: <album:top album:40>

(Never particularly knew album: or some of those other "tag" searches existed.)

i didn't either!!, but i like to investigate and self-help as much as possible haha :lol:
I clicked the HELP > Search Syntax in the main toolbar and saw the huge list of functions, but I was a bit dense around the subject of wildcards and literal strings when used with the functions.
The help and documentation is exceptionally good, but that little snippet of info was what i needed to know and wasn't there.

Suggestion? Maybe adding some example search strings to the search syntax help screen? for each function and operator combination would be super useful, if possible ? it's a little sparse for dummies like me :(

Code: Select all

Function Syntax:
	function:value	Equal to value.
	function:<=value	Less than or equal to value.
	function:<value	Less than value.
	function:=value	Equal to value.
	function:>value	Greater than value.
	function:>=value	Greater than or equal to value.
	function:start..end	Is in the range of values from start to end.
	function:start-end	Is in the range of values from start to end.
EDIT: one other suggestion please, if it's not already on the delevopment roadmap, it would be absolutely brilliant if a CONTAINS or CO "" clause could be added? i know that is easily worked around with other operators, but contains is a bit more user intuitive?
Thanks again!
Rob
