Removed removable drives

Postby gt13 » Mon Jul 13, 2009 11:48 pm

In the updates announcement page of X1® Professional Client Blackbird Beta II :

one reads:

New Features/Enhancements in the X1 Professional Client
• Added support for indexing removable drives.
- Once a removable media drive is removed X1 will delete the drive results from the index and will not automatically add the drive to the File Indexing Options list.
- If a removable drive is removed or not available after initial indexing X1 will maintain the results in the index, but will not display a preview.

These two sentences seem contradictory. Can somebody explain ?

I need a desktop search engine that indexes removable drives, network drives, Thunderbird, image's metadata, Evernote, and works fine with accented letters.

I agree. It is confusing. Here is what they might mean:

If you remove your USB drive from using the Options for Indexing, Files, then x1 will clean up after you and remove the old index details.

If you unplug a USB drive, it will remember what it indexed for when you plug the thing back in again.

Maybe someone at x1 could clarify.

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

Kenward, your interpretation (above) is correct. We will update the release notes in the GA version of Blackbird.

Thanks to Gerard for pointing this out.
