Turning Off the Indexer

The Indexer is a Windows Vista background process that indexes the contents of a drive on-the-fly as you add or delete data. This greatly speeds up Vista’s new search features (including Instant Search) because Vista knows the contents of each file. However, you should consider turning off the Indexer for a drive if you don’t do much file searching. To do this, follow these steps:

1.
Select Start, Computer.

2.
Right-click the drive you want to work with and then click Properties. Windows Vista display’s the drive’s properties sheet.

3.
On the General tab, deactivate the Index This Drive for Faster Searching check box.

4.
Click OK.
