Everything v1.4.1.895

Everything is a powerful search tool that locates files and folders by file name instantly, and includes an FTP and Web server interface. It also can search files by their contents. Unlike Windows search, Everything initially displays all files and folders on your computer. You simply type in part of the desired file name to limit what files and folders are displayed instantly. The more you type, the more specific the list becomes.

Note that the instant-search capability only works on NTFS/ReFS-formatted drives and only uses file and folder names in a file index. The program can separately catalog non-NTFS/ReFS and network servers for searching on a schedule.

System Requirements: Win2K / WinXP / Vista / Win7 / Win8 / Win10

In case it does not remembers sort order, you have to edit 2 lines in Everything.ini:

Gah, lost my settings due to upgrading :(

Just a heads up to those upgrading, especially those with folder/file exclusions which is incredibly annoying to lose.

@Midas:...No sweat...;-)

After due deliberation with my editorial team, I just "spiked" the former (redundant) "Beta" extended notice (time-stamped 2014-06-08 12:38) , which was, in essence, already duplicated in the relevant forum topic anyway:

@__philippe: to avoid clutter, please consider deleting or moving the previous *beta* notice to the forum topic. Thanks. :)

Yeah I'm using that but the x64 version, anyway after some trial and error I figured it out. It seems it either needs to be ran as administrator, and if not you need to go into the options and under "Indexes" > "NTFS" and uncheck whats there to have it play nice with firewalls.
