How to crash X1 8.3 – try to add Windows folder to index

Postby Kenward » Tue Nov 11, 2014 7:19 am

Wondering if I could add something to the Files index, I went to the Windows folder on drive C.

X1 just hangs there before giving up the ghost and crashing.

Windows 10 Pro 64-bit | Windows 10 Home 32-bit
No, I have nothing to do with X1, just a user since 2004.

The X1 icon in the toolbar shows two hidden windows, X1 GlowWindows. Both of them "Not Responding".

This is in Windows 7.1.

Most probably it is the Windows\winsxs folder that gives trouble, as it can contain tens of thousands of subfolders
