disable indexing upon logon

Post by kumar » Sun May 03, 2020 4:49 pm

Hello,
Everything starts indexing every time I logon to my PC. It takes so much time and resources that for the first 15 minutes after logging on, I cannot do anything with my PC. Is there a way to address this issue?

You can set a delay before starting to scan the hdds(which is what I do)
Make everything to not auto start from the settings and then create a shortcut to it in
C:\Users\User\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Windows\Start Menu\Programs\Startup
and add this command line to the shortcut

-startup -load-delay 15000

Or you can just make it not start along with windows and load it manually

Thanks. Upon starting, the message on the application window says scanning C: drive, so does it mean everything is creating the entire index again from scratch or only incremental? Can I tell everything to index only what is missing/new or changed from the index it already built last time instead, of creating the entire index on every startup of the application or every startup of the application on PC logon?

It is scanning for changes,it doesn't indexing everything from scratch
A single windows restart does a lot of changes to a lot of files so everything is updating the database

But if you are saying that it takes long time if you just sign out=>log in,then something may be wrong
