1  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: FARR and Indexing Option - Feedback Requested on: August 10, 2013, 11:59:32 AM
"Everything" won't index remote drives without installing extra software on those remote systems (which is not allowed at most workplaces, I suspect).

Here's hoping an indexing system would improve on that limitation.

Thanks
2  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / any plugins which would allow FARR to tap into a disk cataloger database? on: August 10, 2013, 11:25:59 AM
Good sirs:

I have catalog files of all my external hard drives.

Has anyone written a plugin to allow FARR to tap into those catalogs?

I'm using the WhereIsIt cataloger at the moment, but I'll gladly switch if someone has written a program for another one.

Thx


P.S. If I find a text-based cataloger, is there a plugin allowing FARR to search text files?
3  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / subfolders on: February 16, 2012, 09:48:16 AM
Hi.
Is FARR supposed to search all subfolders on a drive, even if they aren't added manually?
I'm almost sure one of my computers does so, but on another one, FARR won't find files inside subfolders!
What's going on?

Thanks

Whoo thanks!
It worked fine dynamically until we got the new RAID.

P.S.
How about a column for file sizes too. No one could tell me if that would make the app too slow or not.
5  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Suddenly FARR is jumping the gun on searches and making me wait. on: March 17, 2011, 03:02:20 PM
Hi.
We got a new hard drive which is apparently slowing down my FARR searches.
But maybe altering the settings in FARR would help.

I see where I can set a delay between the time I stop typing and the time FARR begins searching, but I can't see where to actually set the duration of the delay.

1500 ms would be ideal.
Is that setting in the ini file?

Thanks

thank you sir, I will hunt that file down
7  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / export all my settings so I can send them to other computers on: March 15, 2011, 05:15:06 PM
Hi.
Is there a file somewhere that contains all my settings?

There are a whole lot of preferences to change every time I want to install FARR on a new computer...

Thanks.
8  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / show file size in search results on: February 12, 2011, 10:27:38 AM
Hi.
With a few minutes searching, I saw some mention of this topic in the forum, but no clear answer.

Would it make the searches just too darn slow?


Thx
9  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: right click file - jump right to context menu without pressing "M" on: January 08, 2011, 09:16:04 AM
And l was using line 11 with some moderate success...
But now I see how line 15 is necessary to isolate all the commands between line 11 and 15.
That opens up many possibilities in some other scripts I've written!
Thanks!
10  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: right click file - jump right to context menu without pressing "M" on: January 08, 2011, 07:18:22 AM
Thanks sir!
I'll be able to try it out Monday.

I was trying to use #
RButton:: CLICK Send, ^p

in order to make sure that the proper file in the list was selected first before the ^p went into effect.

but looks like your ~ before the RButton might take care of selecting the proper file?

Thanks again.
11  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: right click file - jump right to context menu without pressing "M" on: January 07, 2011, 04:42:12 PM
Thanks sir.
That cuts out half the work!
Now I'll just make an AHK script to send "ctrl-p" any time I right click within a FARR results window.
We'll see how far I get.

Oh great. Now I've lost all right click functionality.
This will take a while.
12  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / right click file - jump right to context menu without pressing "M" on: January 07, 2011, 06:22:28 AM
Hi Mr. Mouser.

98% of of the time, when I search for a file, I right click it, and immediately press "M" to get to the standard windows context menu.

Is there a way to skip or automate that step, and make FARR immediately route me to the windows context menu?

I'll probably think of a way as soon as I press "Post".

Thanks.
13  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: searching for multiple files on: December 06, 2010, 02:02:09 PM

I should change the shortcut for his favorite program so that it launches FARR anyway
14  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / searching for multiple files on: December 02, 2010, 05:43:27 PM
Hi.
I'm trying to convert my coworker to FARR, and he wont switch away from "Effective File Search" unless he can search for multiple files at the same time.

I've never seen mention of that feature in FARR.

Is it in there somewhere?

For example:

search for
all files containing
q0998989 or v897987987
in one fell swoop?

Thx
15  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: how to specify searching only in two specific folders? on: October 18, 2010, 03:01:25 PM
well sir mouse, it seems to work

thanks

now no drive is too big for FARR to deal with
16  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: how to specify searching only in two specific folders? on: October 16, 2010, 10:38:17 AM
ah...

can't wait to try it when I get back to work

thanks!
17  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: how to specify searching only in two specific folders? on: October 16, 2010, 10:32:57 AM
I updated my picture, but don't know how to trash the old one...
18  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: how to specify searching only in two specific folders? on: October 15, 2010, 03:30:30 PM
this one shows, all together, my search folder list, the search I'm trying to run, and the file sitting in the drive that should be found

ps: new picture - can't believe I took such a useless first version
pps: the machine with FARR has zero internet connection with my email machine, so I can't take real screenshots

Fear not though - Screen Shot Captor is installed elsewhere
19  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: how to specify searching only in two specific folders? on: October 15, 2010, 02:19:44 PM
but then I get no results at all unless I manually type in the search box

+m +6 +7 +8

This is turning into a new feature request?
20  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: how to specify searching only in two specific folders? on: October 15, 2010, 01:46:47 PM
this is the sadness I have... (attached pictures)

in this particular case I don't want to search all m drives... JUST the M drive...
21  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: how to specify searching only in two specific folders? on: October 15, 2010, 12:40:50 PM
I watched the screencast.
Good stuff.

When I use modifier keywords for 6 different drives, however, I have problems.
For my 6 directories, I have them keyworded as

8*
7*
6*
m*
evdtool*
hd6*

I want them to all be searched by default, but to restrict the search when I press "+m", for example.

Right now they're all being searched no matter what modifier I type.

Help?
22  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: how to specify searching only in two specific folders? on: October 15, 2010, 10:42:42 AM
Hi. This thread isn't closed, so I think my question belongs here.

what if I want to restrict a search to just a specific drive (without going into prefs and unchecking the unwanted drives) ?

I could have sworn there was a way to type in something like "F: smallville" to restrict my search to just the F drive.

Thanks

Thanks for all the answers.
I never got the usual email notification of any replies and only saw them today.
Will try a few of these.
(I can't mark anything as an exception in the company antivirus program)
24  DonationCoder.com Software / Finished Programs / MoveOut - any way to make it move directories? on: July 28, 2010, 10:49:37 AM
Hi.
Here at work I'm trying to introduce everyone to the wonders of MoveOut.

But instead of depositing single files into a "watch folder", everyone puts them in directories first to keep things organized.

Is there any way to get MoveOut to watch for folders and move them to the desired location? Just like it does with files?

Thx
25  DonationCoder.com Software / Find And Run Robot / Re: dragging search results into a tool on the toolbar on: May 18, 2010, 06:29:52 AM
good grief... I didn't even try pressing the button

that will probably work! I'll be able to check it in a few hours

what I did in the meantime was make little ahk scripts which achieved what I wanted through the context menu, and stuck those up into the toolbar

the names I gave the shortcuts don't show up though...

thx
