Indexing external HD

Postby aindriu80 » Sat Aug 19, 2017 5:40 pm


The other day I saw that you could index a network location or external hard disk with Everything. Indexing the external hard disk option would be great because I have a 1TB disk with tons of files on it but searching at the moment is impossible. The mechanical HD is on the local network (LAN cable connected to a printer, connected to a 8 port Netgear Gigabit Ethernet Switch). I have assigned it a drive letter on my computer. I know its going to take a while but I want to know :

Does Everything start indexing afresh every time I boot my machine up ? What is the best way to deal with indexing the external HD ?

I was reading viewtopic.php?f=5&t=4296 about allowing offline volumes to stay in the index, but I am none the wiser. What should I do ?
