How do you turn off Windows hard drive indexing?
Posted on 2011-02-14
How do you turn off (Or on) The Windows hard drive indexing and what is the benefit? I use my computer for video editing (Adobe CS5 Master Suite) and all programs run fine except one; Adobe CS5 Encore. It takes FOREVER to save the program. Most noticeably, If I place the mouse over the FILE tab, it takes a long time to highlight. When I click the tab, it takes FOREVER to open. Someone asked if I had the Windows HD indexing on or off. I don't know.
What is best On or Off?
How do I turn it on or off?
If I turn this off/on what does it effect?
