"Enable USN Journal" keeps getting set

I run two instances of Everything.

Everything-1 is for volumes C, D, E, F
Everything-2 is for volumes X, Y (USB offline volume)

I uncheck "Enable USN Journal" but a volume (that is set to "Monitor Changes" in the other instance of Everything) will automatically get "Enable USN Journal" checked.

Is there a way to prevent this?

Enabling "Monitor Changes" will also enable "Enable USN Journal". The two are related.
Some background information


Other applications (or Windows) can enable the USN Journal (it's a Windows thing that Everything can use or not).


If you don't want to monitor chaqnges, it's enough to disable the Monitor Changes setting.
This has to be done per disk/volume:
- Click on each Local NTFS volume that you no longer want to monitor( under Menu:Tools > Options > Indexes > NTFS )
- disble Monitor Changes
