Removed removable drives

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 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.

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.
