I doubt it's related to the fact that Everything is not open (well free
regarding the price).

Another tool such as locate could certainly work, though it's not
straightforward to set up under Cygwin, and locate's contents is only updated
every once in a while.

Everything, on the other hand, is always fully up-to-date. You move a file, it
already knows about that. Very practical.
