CFINDEX: diff between PATH and FILE type?

I'm building a site search using CFSEARCH on Verity collections. Nightly an automated process will run a page which uses CFINDEX to make sure the catalogs are current. Really, the search is handling three things:

1)A search of dynamic content kept in database tables -- this collection is created and indexed and works as expected.
2)A search of a catalog which contains Web site documents -- .cfm, .html, .asp, etc.
3)A search of a catalog which contains documents living on our Web server -- .doc, .ppt, .pdf, etc.

What TYPE should I make the CFINDEX for 2 & 3 -- should they be PATH or FILE? I can't quite identify what the difference is, despite looking in the CFMX docs and my CF WACK.

File -- Indexes files.
Path -- Indexes all files in specified path that pass EXTENSIONS filter.

If you don't specify an extentions filter then they should act the same.  Therefore it would be better to use PATH and not FILE

Ah, thanks! I was wondering, because in testing they seemed to work the same and I was wondering if I was missing something. Now I get it!  =-)
