How long to update

Postby choco » Mon Feb 15, 2010 10:53 am

I have my X1 set to update in real time. Setting the search for "today" nothing shows, yet my email attachment folder shows many new images. What is happening?

Hard to tell what is going on with so little information to go by.

What are you indexing and searching for?

Where and what is this "email attachment folder"? A folder in Outlook? A folder that holds attachments that arrive by email?

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

One thing to bear in mind is that if the Real Time indexing gets too far behind, it stops trying to catch up and waits until the next scheduled scan. This is to prevent the Real Time scanner from unintentionally taking too much CPU. I would recommend triggering a manual scan, ensuring that your scheduled scan is set to something reasonable (perhaps once every 2 hours or 4 hours, but definitely set to some time that the computer is running) and that should fix things for you.
