That is also a possibility .. I interpreted it as "a folder with many sub-folders"

So instructions if you want to search for the filenames everywhere (multiple folders, disks, etc:
  • In Total Commander, browse to the textfile that contains the filenames and highlight it.
  • Click on "the other button"
  • Everything will open with all matches
  • Ctrl-C/Ctr-V or drag/drop the files to a folder in TC.
  • Done


"The other button" ;)

Code: Select all

TOTALCMD#BAR#DATA
"C:\Program Files\Everything\Everything.exe"
-filter Everything -search-file-list %P%N
C:\Program Files\Everything\Everything.exe
Search for a list of files anywhere
C:\Program Files\Everything\

They just wrote me a cmd file that generates fake files from my list) It is not difficult to hang it on the TC panel and use it with %P%N. :mrgreen:

Code: Select all

@echo off
cd /d %~dp0
set filelist="%~1"
set filelistpath="%~dp1"
echo %filelist%

Hmm, not a bad button ... Maybe I'll try to make friends with this program again. The first time I tried to use this program, when I needed to search for files every day in one folder where there are 160,000 files and 23,000 folders, TC did it very slowly. And I did not understand how to create a permanent database in Everything that will be used to search in this folder and deleted it.

If the search in 'Everything' takes a long time, it is often due to this setting, which should be avoided(!):

Code: Select all

[✓] Run as administrator
[✓] Everything Service
Maybe this hints will help:
Search queries in TC using 'Everything'
2. TC Parameter --> ev: wrote: "However, the search is only carried out in those drives/folders that have been defined accordingly in the 'Everything' settings,
i.e. under menu "Tools" - "Options..."
- Indexes: NTFS (Local volumes) - ☑ Include in database,... (Hard disks + USB drives: NTFS formatted)
- Indexes: Folders - ☑ Attempt to monitor changes, ◉ Update (e.g. network folders, USB drives[FAT32,...], etc.*))
- Indexes: NTFS https://www.voidtools.com/support/everything/everything_service/
- Indexes: Folders https://www.voidtools.com/support/everything/folder_indexing/

*) etc. means in this case: Drives that are not NTFS formatted."

If 'Everything' is checked - without the prefix ev: - then the search criteria of TC (with the support of 'Everything') apply,
i.e. you still get the search result much faster than if 'Everything' is not checked.
PS: Thanks for sharing the cmd file! :)

Can you briefly? Those. this program constantly hangs in memory and monitors all operations with files, create some kind of database? Is it because of this that she searches quickly? From the beginning, I tried to set up file indexing in windows itself, but it did not give any results.

And another question: how (in the program itself) to search for a file in a specific directory, and not on the entire device? Or it is only possible with the TC search box.

udp: What are the weird files in the search results ?

Indexing 4 internal drives and approx. 1.1 million entries in 'Everything' takes <5 seconds for me,
when I recreate the index (Everything.db) with "Force Rebuild". Probably the indexing takes longer the very first time.

No.

'Everything' Search box:

Code: Select all

C:\Tools\Everything\ searchword (replace "searchword" with your search term - watch out for the space between path and search word)
C:\Tools\Everything\Everything.ini   OR e.g.
"C:\Tools\Everything\Toolbar in the Taskbar\Migration\Everything Toolbar in the Taskbar.txt"  <- blanks, then use "" quotes
Button in TC, e.g. (path to Everything.exe must be adjusted) - copy/paste the code to your buttonbar...

Code: Select all

TOTALCMD#BAR#DATA
C:\Tools\Everything\Everything.exe -parentpath
%V
C:\Tools\Everything\Everything.exe
Open PARENT PATH\*.* [.. F2] (INCLUDING SUBDIRECTORIES) of TC in Everything (-parentpath)|Cursor position doesn't matter!|https://www.voidtools.com/support/everything/command_line_options/|https://www.voidtools.com/support/everything/searching/

MARK2580 wrote:udp: another question, why does Everything show up in search results ?
With this setting, the behaviour should be solved?

Code: Select all

Menu "Tools" -> Options... -> "Results" -> [✓] Hide results when the search is empty
In my opinion, we are now digressing a bit too much from the actual topic (file lists).
Questions about 'Everything' should be dealt with in a separate topic.

I agree :mrgreen:
Thanks for the detailed descriptions, I will read them later, unfortunately my native language is Russian and I will have to translate all this from the beginning, and then try to understand it.

The same goes for me (English is not my native language).
I also have the text translated :?

Exactly! And Everything does this very resource friendly, so you will not notice. That makes searches quick. Although: "quick" is not the right word. Try for yourself ;)

And another question: how (in the program itself) to search for a file in a specific directory, and not on the entire device? Or it is only possible with the TC search box.
In Everything: search for:

Code: Select all

"C:\my folder\"  "some file"
You don't have to type entire names. This would work too

Code: Select all

folder\  "ome fi"
The "" are not necessary when names dont have spaces in them.


But @tuska is right: this is getting off topic. But you can always post your questions on the Everything forum ..
