|Purpose:||Search for files and/or directories|
|Format:||EVERYTHING [/= /B /C /D /E /F /H /I /M=n /O /P /R /S /V /W @file] filename [...]|
|filename||The file or directory name to search for|
|@file||A text file containing the names of the files to search for, one per line (see @file lists for details)|
Supports extended wildcards, and multiple file names. Date, time, size or exclude ranges anywhere on the line apply to all source files. Use wildcards with caution on LFN volumes; see LFN File Searches for details.
Search for files and/or directories on local NTFS drives using "Everything Search" (http://www.voidtools.com). EVERYTHING by default does a wildcard search equivalent to "*filename*", and outputs the full pathname of all matching files and/or directories.
You need to install Everything Search and index your local NTFS drives before using EVERYTHING.
For example, to locate all .DOCX files on all of your previously indexed drives:
everything /f *.docx
To locate all .DOCX files on drive C: (assuming it has been previously indexed):
everything /f c:*.docx
Use a more complete path to restrict the search even further — for example:
everything /f c:\MyFiles\*.docx
|/=||Display the EVERYTHING command dialog to help you set the command line options. The /= option can be anywhere on the line; additional options will set the appropriate fields in the command dialog.|
|/E||Display the Everything Search dialog. You can combine /E with the other EVERYTHING options (except /D and /F).|
|/R||filename is a regular expression (EVERYTHING will automatically set the regular expression flag if the filename begins with ::)|
|/S||Sort results by path, then by file name. (This can take several seconds with a large number of search results.)|
