I have nearly 5TB of data on my main computer and connected drives. The built in search indexing ties up my i/o and makes my computer drag every time I move any amount of files around or add any amount of files (for example, virtually every day I copy a GB or more of digital photos to the machine).
Is there some other search utility I could use in Windows 7 or some way to make the search build the index at night?
I've tried selectively indexing, but then it ends up not being very useful when I want to find something.
I also recall I had a problem with the built in search database getting so large it got corrupt at one point and I had to delete it, I think it was 10GB.
