How to back up the "Indexing Options" settings? [registry/system file?
I'd like to back up (and be able to restore upon Windows 7 reinstall) all my heavily-customised Indexing Options settings.
e.g. I have VERY customised list of file types that I have ticked in the Advanced Options, to the "Index Properties and File Contents" type instead of just "Properties" - which is kind of essential for *really* properly searching my computer and my documents. Like publisher files, have text in them that I really need to be able to find, and by default PUB is set to Properties only....so I have many file types like this ticked to actually be properly indexed.
And what a pain it would be to have to manually go through and tick every one upon system reinstall (not to mention, remember/note down what ones that i ticked, beforehand!).
Are the settings stored somewhere in the registry? In some system file inside windows/USER folder?
Let's hunt down for where it's stored. Nothing in windows can't be backed up.

Hello there. This should help you.
1. Please click the Windows Pearl (Start button), type "Indexing options" without quotation marks, and press Enter.
2. Click "Modify" button to modify Indexed Locations, for default locations after a clean installation is followings:
Offline Files, Start Menu and Users.
And you could uncheck the selects.
3. Click Advanced button, in the "Index Settings tab", click "Rebuild" to rest the index.
You may also click "Troubleshoot search and indexing" for a troubleshooting wizard.
