How would I change the default schedule for file indexing? My wife's new computer with Windows 8 appears to run file indexing every morning when the computer is first booted. It's that unique sound of rapid accessing of the hard drive.
With over 700,000 image files in addition to all the usual system files, it takes a very long time every day. Annoyance aside, I worry about wear and tear. 99.99% of the file locations never change.
Is it possible to change the entire schedule or limit the file endexing? All those files are on a second hard drive so excluding that from the indexing would work if that's possible.
As a secondary question, is it possible to bypass the log in feature in Windows 8 the way we could on earlier versions of Windows?
Thanks a second time.
