Hello -

My main index is taking up too much space on my internal HD and I need to
move it to an external SSD HD. (The drive is always plugged in).

How do I do this?

Much thanks,


- M

hello,

I assume you're asking how to do this in the Professional version as you cannot make any such choices in the personal version.

The way to do this would be to close the index from the manage indices pane, then copy it to the folder of your choice, delete the old one then open the new instance from the manage indices pane. Voila !

Regards,
