Indexing content... About 23 days... [message #438] Sun, 30 October 2016 22:09 Go to previous message

First of all, my first test with foxtrot (with only some data) impressed me
really! This is exactly what I was searching for! Especially the
functionality to index my NAS.

So after my first test I wanted to index my NAS with about 700 GB data.
These data contains pictures as tiff, jpg etc, illustration as ai, eps
etc, documents like doc, txt, rft etc. mails as emlx, pdfs, indesign,
photoshop... etc. (graphic designer files).

The first step indexing was quite fast. But when starting indexing the
content it's getting slow... really slow! And at the moment it's telling me
it would take about 23 days (slowly getting more). But i can see (because
of the "filex of"-status and in the log), it's working. Is there any way to
speed up this process? At the moment I do it with WLAN. Could this be "the
break"? Should I exclude some kind of files from content indexing which are
"typically" for this problem? Or should I "just wait"?

Thank you in advance for help!
