I have this 8TB external with 1.6 million files and indexing takes time, about 15 minutes or so.
any chance to speedup exFat indexing?

Thanks a million.

That is hard to accomplish due to the way the exFat filesystem is organized.
It is missing features that make indexing - for example - NTFS volumes blazingly fast.


BTW: around 1700 files per second indexed. I wouldn't call that slow, necessarily
