Re: Symbolic links

I have another idea about this problem: Everything can report, that there is a folder with this attribute. e.g. You have directory structure: c:\DirectoryToSearch\RealFolder\FileToFind.txt c:\DirectoryToSearch\SymlinkedFolder\FileToFind.txt And when you search FileToFind.txt, result can be something...

Re: Saving database is slow

Thanks for the ideas! All these hints bypass saving database to the flash drive. But its ok for me to have database on flash drive. I just wanted to suggest/ask, if it would be too complicated to do the database incremental or something like this :)

ntfs_volume_roots="","","","","intermediate\\dummy"

Re: Symbolic links

Processing symlinks can be problematic. I understand it. But simply unpack given path to base (without symlinks) form should be easy. It will give you worse results e.g.: after looking for files in c:\Symlink\ (= c:\Some\Strange\Path\PhysicalLocation\) will give you path starting with c:\Some\Strang...

Re: Symbolic links

If you mean Tools/Options/Indexes/Folders, Add and enter the folder, which is symbolic link, than unfortunately this cant be done. The symbolic link folder is unpacked to its non-link form.

Symbolic links

I have few folders, which are symbolic links to different folder on the same drive. Is it possible to somehow find files in this symbolic-linked folder please?
Thanks for advice.
