Disabling Indexing files in Ubuntu
Since Ubuntu 7.10, the automatic indexing of files is enabled.
- This means that at regular intervals, a program will read and index the contents of all your files.
- This is useful if you use the software Tracker or Deskbar, but it takes up a lot of disk space and consumes significant CPU.
- It is possible to disable it:
- Go to Menu System> Preferences> Indexing Preferences
- Uncheck the two boxes “Enable indexing” and “Enable watching“
