How is X1 supposed to handle USB drives?

Postby Kenward » Sat Mar 13, 2010 3:48 am

I have a 500GB USB drive that I attach to my laptop.

X1 sees it and starts to index the drive.

But it does not seem to remember where it was between sessions.

The Release Notes for X1 6.7 tell me that:
If you unplug an external drive from the computer, X1 will keep the results in the index and will refresh them once you connect the drive back to the computer.

This is not my experience.

Is there some trick to how you disconnect the USB drive? Or in how I set X1 to index?

As it is, X1 is useless with an external USB drive. Would it be better to "share" the drive and connect as a network drive?

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