Volume Index Defaults

Post by gunrunnerjohn » Wed Oct 07, 2009 12:31 am

Is there any way to set the volume index defaults so that Everything doesn't try to index the volume unless I want it to? I have a bunch of removable drives that get connected from time to time, but I always have to manually stop Everything from indexing them to safely remove them. I'd just like to be able to set the defaults for a new drive to NOT index, then I can configure it if I like.

Currently, you will need to change the following lines in the Everything.ini:

Code: Select all

check_media_A=0
check_media_B=0
check_media_C=1
check_media_D=1
check_media_E=1
check_media_F=1
check_media_G=1
check_media_H=1
check_media_I=1
check_media_J=1
check_media_K=1
check_media_L=1
check_media_M=1
check_media_N=1
check_media_O=1
check_media_P=1
check_media_Q=1
check_media_R=1
check_media_S=1
check_media_T=1
check_media_U=1
check_media_V=1
check_media_W=1
check_media_X=1
check_media_Y=1
check_media_Z=1
Change the drives you do not wish "Everything" to index to 0

I have added the option to disable automatic removable drive indexing to my "Things to do" list.
