is there a way to see which folders are taking everything so long to index at startup?

Only one drive (letter), I presume?

(On my end, it flashes though 6 or so drive letters as it scans.)

12 drives with some storage spaces and some vhdx... only thing i can think thats slowing it down is folders and sub-folders (which is why im interested in knowing which folder/sub-folder its spending time on because i can easily exclude it).

Please try running Everything in debug mode.

Look for the following lines in the debug console:

Code: Select all

scanning X:\folder...
Where X:\folder is the folder currently being updated.
