I have two identical folders
C:\Indexed\folder1\ with 50 entries
and c:\NotIndexed\folder1\ with same 50 entries
I use start > indexing options > modify > c drive and turn indexing off NotIndexed
I wait an hour to be sure indexing is done.
i use explorer search box for search for name:doc in both folders
under NotIndexed the search is almost instantaneous
under Indexed the search takes almost 10 seconds.
Since most of my documentation folders on the C: drive are indexed, almost all of my searches are slow.
If I dropped all my folders from the windows index, searches for < content:"my Desired Term" > would take forever (see note below)
Is there any setting or registry entry that would make name: searches go faster?
Also, does anybody know if windows 10 has fixed this problem?
Note: My above question applies to normal Windows environments. If no one can answer my question, I will use a third party solution which I know will work. I am running X1.com search which has its own index and provides instant content level searching even when the windows index is off. But, I like have both both indexes available.
