indexing service

#2
The Indexing service creates a centralized database with information about all the files on your hard drive. Keeping such a centralized list makes searches much faster, so when you want to search for a file on your drive, you'd find it quicker.

Unless you use the search very frequently, you don't really need to have the Indexing Service running. Besides, it continuously scans your hard drive when it's idle in order to create the list, so disabling the service will reduce background disk activity.

well, once the hardrive is mapped, the indexing service uses very little, and performance degradation is not noticeable

as netryder says, many people like to dissable the service and find a performance gain

I like it though, I do searches frequently, my hardrive is allready mapped, and I don't see any performance hit whatsoever

your call
