Good morning CP, I turned "search" off a long time ago for the reasons you've indicated, performance and ssd activity, don't miss it at all.

"Ditto"

I don't miss windows search. I use an alternative search tool that doesn't require installation. It's insanely fast! I do have another third party search tool installed for when I need to run a filter on searches.

Well yes, but not to offend you or anything, you are not the only SSD user and some people can only afford or choose to use a laptop as their primary computing source. But you are correct in your assumption that most of the regulars here do the SSD-OS, HDD-data thing, so I guess maybe I should look into a laptop forum to pitch my idea Thank you for bringing that to my attention, have a good day
If I offended you, I profusely apologize; it certainly wasn't my intention.

I'm not putting down your idea; I'm just saying it's not applicable for me.
Offend me, come on It would take a very large tank with like....rockets and stuff to offend me. /hugs
