I am about to update from Office 2002 to Office 2010. I am happy with everything except for OneNote,
Here is what I have read on this forum, please acknowledge if this is correct or misinformation.
1. I have Solid State Drives in RAID0 format for my C-drive, I do not want to use indexing because it fills up the SSD drives quickly. I have it turned off but I read here that there is no way of turning off OneNote indexing and having it stay off. i.e. iOnenote always turns the indexing back on. Office 2010 Student and Home does not offer any customization (i.e. do not install OneNote) I would have to go with Office for Home and Business or Office Professional.
2. If I could have the Onenote index on my D-drive (WD 640GB) then I would be happy but apparently OneNote uses Windows Search and that is likely to be on my C-drive, hence, if that is the case, I would want Onenote search turned off
3. If I could somehow have Onenote index on my D-drive and not affect my SSD drives, even then I would have problems. I have a bunch of Word and PDF documents that I want to move to Onenote and have the search function of OneNote index my Word and PDF files. Apparently, Onenote does not look inside Word and PDF files for indexing.
4. I like to use Firefox, apparently OneNote prefers Explorer. There is a Firefox addon called 'clip to OneNote' - has anybody had experience with this Addon and OneNote 2010 ?
I am very happy with my SSD drives except for the loss of the ability to index. Google Search would probably satisfy me, but I had it installed and 1 week later, my OS would barely work. Reflashing my SSD drives with a utility from OCZ fixed the problem.
