Maybe I don't how indexing works but, to my understanding, it builds an
index, when first started, of all the files in the assigned places. That part
is fine. What annoys me is that it seems to rebuild this index perodically,
causing excessive hard drive activity. Does it modify the index when an
individual file is created, moved, or deleted? If so, why the periodic
reindexing? I have a laptop, and excessive hard drive activity annoys me and
drains my battery.
