Hi there!

While prepping to defrag my videodrive (as my dealer told me to do) I have noticed something previously overlooked on the videodrive's properties dialog.

There are two checkboxes. The first says "compress drive to save disk space" and the second says" allow indexing service to index this disk for fast file searching."

My videodrive has a checkmark in the second box. Should this box be UNchecked, or is my setting correct? I seem to remember from somewhere that any and all drive indexing should be disabled.

Thanks
Dan

Correct, it should be disabled.

One of the final steps in the Toaster's Autoconfig (in recent versions) is to ask if you want to turn off indexing on the video drives. If you need to reinstall or run Autoconfig for whatever other reason, answer "yes".
