I have what may be a unique need: There are a lot of files on my network shares (over 100K) some of which are in more of an archive share. I'd rather not have to scroll through all of those (tracks, artists, albums etc.) but it would be nice to find them via the folder access method if I need them.
Unfortunately, near as I can tell if the network share is attached they have to be indexed, so I get the whole set.
It would seem a fairly small step to add a field to the shares data: a check box indicating whether this share should be indexed. If not only folder access would be provided.
I can see one concern... it would be one more thing to have to support when people don't check that box then wonder where their tracks went. Start by defaulting it on of course!
Thanks for giving it some thought.
