Can a File Be Indexed Only Once?

Postby xyzzy » Wed Jan 10, 2018 9:18 am

I have a particularly large file that is static (will not be added to or changed) and only needs to be indexed once. X1 re-indexes it every time, which takes a lot of time. Is there any way to designate that the file should be indexed once and then left alone?

X1 determines if a file needs to be re-indexed based on few properties like the file size, and date last modified. Is for example the "date modified" changed for that large file?

Some backup software has been known to change the "signature" of a file, thus prompting X1 to reindex it.

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