SSD - indexing just the HD's?

Hi Folks,

Sucessfully put in a Samsung 840 SSD with Win 7 Ultimate and got rid of my Raid 1 and installed a few other drives and will setup a local backup as well as a cloud backup. The HD throughput is so much better without the RAID 1 and the USB 3 seems to have improved quite a bit when copying to and from HD's.

I do miss the windows indexing though, which I turned off. Since all of the data is on HD's, is it possible to have one of them indexed without involving the SSD? Primarily for things like searching for a file or searching for an email, etc.

Can this be done without indexing the SSD?

Thx DD

Yes, you can turn indexing on for individual drives. Right click on the drive and check the box for indexing. My SSD is not set for indexing but I do have it set on at least one other drive.
