Windows 7: Library Question

31 Jan 2011   #11
James Colbert


Hi Golden. If you just want to index the Library and don't want the indexer to crawl through your SSD, you could always store the folders you want in your Library on another drive. Then you could turn on and modify the index to include only those folders (from the 'other drive') you've added to the Library. I think this would constitute having the Library indexed.

Anyway, it shouldn't be too much effort to try, and easy to confirm if it works by checking for your missing 'Arrange by' options after you've finished. It may need time to index before you see results.

Yep - thats they way I was thinking James - I'll give that a go and see if it works.

Turning ON indexing fixes this issue - I will have a play and see if I can get away with just indexing some select locations.
