There has got to be a catch. On another forum this advice was given to reduce stuttering on XP systems:
"my computer, fsx drive, properties, uncheck ALLOW INDEXING SERVICE TO INDEX THIS DISK FOR FAST FILE SEARCHING'..
When i went to 'apply' this change, the pc asked me 'if i want to apply to the disk only' or 'to all subfolders and files'. i got scared and bailed out. set everything back to normal and came here for some sage advice.
Can anyone comment on this process? Does it work? Should I have applied it to 'all subfolders and files'?
What is the catch? You have to lose something...will I have SLOW indexing file searching? What will this mean in terms of fsx and playing fps games? No PC guru here but hoping someone can provide some knowledgeable direction. Thanks
