Everything is a fast folder and file name search engine for Windows. Unlike Windows search this tool initially displays every file and folder on your computer. You type in a search filter to limit what files and folders are displayed.

    Slow?!... maybe we are talking about different softwares... I have Everything installed on an old computer connected on a Novell network (ethernet) and I have mapped different physical supports:
    - my internal drives C: and D: (of course)
    - my external disk G: (USB 2.0)
    - my USB Flash Drive M: (USB 2.0)
    - my network drive P: (on a server)
    - my network drive Q: (another server)

    Guess what? Everytime I change any folder (new file, delete file, change names, etc), Everything updates the database on the fly and is instantaneous.

    If I impose an update to every drives (force to update) it tooks me about 1 minute... and I have about 800.000 files to scan... so, Everything it's not slow. You have something else on your system that is not correct.

    Slow? What are you using, Andy? A 286? I have my main drive and 2 other hard drives and the search is still blazing fast. I still have the same opinion as my previous review. 5 stars.

    Just starting using this, if like me you have quite a few harddrives this programs is SLOW, as it updates it database everytime you run it, "feature which you the end user should be able to disable" if you dont change files on a daily basis or move things around. aka you should be able to update when you feel the need. not everytime you run it. now whilst its updating it database its pretty much useless, now after waiting 50minutes plus each time i restart this app due to the 600-700mb its likes to consume windows search is faster. Given it a 3, would be a 5, but no way to stop it updating the database everytime you run it. would like to be able to disable and run once a week.

    Best searchtool, used it for many years, still using stable release.
    Last time v1.3 was updated is June 26, 2013, has development died?

    Stable version works just fine on win 8.1pro 64bit.
