Indexing OST and PST files before other files are indexed

Post by jmt356 »

I have to index my entire data drive, including my PST and OST files because of a Windows update. I expect it will take several days. I do not know when Windows will get to my PST and OST files. Is it possible to put them at the top of the list so that Windows indexes them before indexing my documents, pictures, videos, etc.?
Regards,

JMT

In Indexing Options > Modify, you might disable indexing for everything except Outlook.
When indexing Outlook has finished, enable the other locations again.
