PROTABLE HARD DISK INDEX

Postby tarekmg » Wed Dec 24, 2008 11:37 pm

I have all my data stored on a portable hard disk (Buffalo 250 GB). This is for security at work and I can use it in more than one computer and location.

How can I add the portable hard disk to be indexed with X1???

The Tools > Option > Indixing > Files > Select files to scan > choose a folder shows only the desktop hard disks and the portable hard disk is not shown.

This is something that X1 needs to address. More and more of us use USB disks of the sort you mention.

The only way I have found around this is to share the USB as a network drive. (How you do this depends on your version of Windows.) You can then add it in X1.

Quite how well behaved the index is when you plug and unplug the device is unclear.

No, I have nothing to do with X1, just a user since 2004.
