Remove Files from the Index

Modified on Wed, 25 Oct 2023 at 01:46 PM

In the Options window, the Files tab displays the list of folders to index, and those excluded. The first part of the list indicates the name or complete path to each folder to index and the types of files to index (documents, music, pictures and/or videos), under the File Types column. The lower part of the list displays folders excluded. As excluded folders are never indexed, the File types column displays nothing for each specified folder. The Index Action column indicates if the subfolders for this folder are indexed or not.

Local and network drives, external hard drives and specific files or folders can be added, excluded or removed. Also, targeted file types can be easily modified.

To remove a drive or folder from the list:

    • In the Tools menu, click Options...
    • Select the Files tab.
    • Select the drive or folder in the list.
    • Click Remove.
    • Click Back to main view or Escape key to confirm and close the Options window.
