everything config: disk signatures

Post by myNameIsJonny! » Wed Oct 21, 2015 3:35 pm

I use everything portable on windows 7, on different base vhd's, with different signatures.

I think this is one reason why there's always a reindex. I'm going to try setup a couple of different DBs, including one that keeps my disconnected external drives indexed.
To stop an inevitable reindex, can I exclude the C: volume, and will the database remain instantly available on program load?

I'm thinking about maybe using a symbolic link / junction to point back to the local drive's appdata, which is like reverse-logic (I'm excavating as much appdata as possible, keep the base footprint down etc), but happy to do whatever works...

Finally (slightly off topic) I use everything portable's ini to configure this stuff... Is there a way to link to everything.exe and include (as a switch) the desired config file?
(Guessing not, thinking about trying batched inifile changes if/when necessary... anyone tried anything similar?!)
