    After 20 minutes my secondary hard disk goes in energy saving, but on random
    times it returns on, although I don't use it. Is it a bug?
    My second hard disk contains multimedia files only and it's almost full, but
    I don't use it.

    Naw it's just indexing doing its best to slow your computer to a crawl.
    Don't worry...it'll stop in a few weeks...maybe....

    It's normal...

  3. Your reply may have been in jest, but just to be clear, by default secondary
    drives are not indexed. You can control what is indexed by going to the
    Indexing Options control panel. Unfortunately I don't know what would cause
    this issue ...

    NO, you're wrong! Your a stupid troll!
    My secondary hard disk is not indexed, in fact by default WindowsSearch
    indexes only a small amount of folders in the primary hard disk (where
    windows is installed) i.e. the Documents folder, the emails, the user profile
    in c:\users. The indexing is very fast because only a small amount of folders
    is indexed, and not the whole hard disk (the indexing is almost instantaneus
    the first time you install Vista because you don't have a lot of documents)!

    because the indexing is executed at low I/O priority without slow down your
    PC).

    I feel sooooooooo terribly insulted.
    So basically the whole indexing is useless by default unless I put my
    data files into directories that get wiped everytime the OS is cleanly
    reinstalled!

    Sounds like such a wonderful idea.

  7. It all depends on how many changes you make. If your data files remain
    pretty much static then there is little new to index. If howevr you
    keep adding or changing files then the Indexer has more to do.

    You can elect to index or not index by hard drive. Just right click on
    the drive folder in Explorer and turn it off or on.
