Allow drive indexing on windows 10?

Hi, very quick question (maybe stupid question I dont know)… I Was wondering if drive indexing should be allowed or not on the hard drive dedicated for storj on windows 10 ? Is it useful or is it just slowing down the system ? (It is enabled by default)
Thanks

I suggest disabling it. It’s really only to create faster searches, and since you will not be searching these files, the indexing service will just slow down the drive. You can also exclude the storage folder from anti-virus scans so it doesn’t degrade the performance of your node.
