resources hog

Postby hrr » Mon Jul 28, 2008 12:05 pm

I love X1 even though it does not want to index Thunderbird email folders containing lots of jpg, pps and ppt attachments. Unrelated to that, I have one major issue. Indexing option is set to the least aggressive, but still, with great frequency, X1 seems to hog all my system resources, and won't let go for what seems like a very long time. Is there some setting I can change to stop that?

Forgot my signature, which gives necessary info, so I will post again. Sorry about that.

Check recent long-running discussions on just this subject.

You are not alone.

X1 may be investigating it, but there hasn't been much in the way of an official response.

No one seems to be able to spot a pattern, which would help.

Try turning off the Index local files in real-time option for files found on the Tools > Options > Files menu.

Please report back and let us know if this helps.
