1# Using the database.
Share ex2s search function is normally very limited.
In order to get a better idea of what's available you need to build your database.
You do this by going to the "Triggers" tab and clicking "Add trigger".
Where it says "keyword" you type/paste the name of the show you're interested in,
under "option" the boxes "Enable" and "Add to DB only" should be checked, the rest should be unchecked,
at "min size" i recommend you put 100 Mbyte in order to avoid filling the database with irrelevant stuff(assuming you're looking for anime episodes),
at "max size" i recommend you put something like 700 Mbyte, unless ofcourse you are looking for huge files.
The rest of the fields should be empty. Now click "Add".
From now on Share will add every file it encounters to its database if it matches your trigger.
This means those files will show up when you do a regular search, even if you are not connected to a node that has a piece those files at the moment.
Keep in mind that as time passes the database will grow and the more triggers you have the faster it grows.
The bigger the database the more memory Share EX2 will use, every time you exit Share it will save its database to a file called "hash.db",
located in the folder where share is installed, by checking how big this file is you know how big your database is.
If you think your database is becoming too big then just remove all old database triggers, exit Share EX2 and delete the hash.db file,
next time you start Share it will have a new empty database.
#2 Rar files with recovery record.
Every now and then you will come across rar files that look like: "someshow (rr3%).rar".
This means if the file is incomplete you can repair it with winrar if less than 3 percent of the file is missing.
In order to even be able to open the file in winrar you must first convert your cache parts to a file,
you can do this by downloading a Share EX2 plugin called: CacheDumpEx (you can find it floating around on share).
just place cachedumpex in your plugins folder, and start share.
You will now have the ability to right click an item under your download tab and click "CacheDumpEx" ,
a new window will appear and you click "Dump".
