Default Is indexing so bad on SSD

I start to be tire of the time it take to load contain of the drives when browsing folders . it kill the purpose of using SSD, is this so bad to re activate the indexing. Or it's me who do something wrong. also without the thump files it take quite a long time to load the thumbnail of the pics in a folders every time I access it.

Its not like the difference is going to be huge WRT to life span, or prolly even noticeable. Indexing is just one of those little SOB programs that write and rewrite data all the damn time. It was much more important before TRIM as that meant a ssd could get into a degraded state PDQ. Nowadays....not so much.

If you plan on replacing the drive in 5yrs or less you prolly wont notice any dif in life span. IF you are planning on keeping it for 10...then maybe just maybe indexing would shorten the lifespan enough to be noticeable (and were are still only talking days here in the dif).

With all that being said you might notice a little bit of reduced performance with it on as Indexing is a resource hog from time to time.

TBH, I have never noticed a slow down with Indexing off. Are you sure it is indexing related and not something else?

Windows 7 w/o indexing/search isn't Windows at all.

Seriously, I can't even use Windows w/o it.

I have quite funny thing happen to in this computer, since I start folding, all network operation are slow, folding or not. it take a wild to list the other PC in the network. Will give priority to the problem and check for real tonight at home I just install Office, and photoshop, no crap in this PC at all

By the way someone keep their drive 10 years 5 is more than I expect, will not be piss if I reach 3 years , anyway they gone have better one for sure

Yes I do. I use Windows Search all the time. If you turn Indexing off it makes search pretty much useless.

I uninstall Firefox, Guess what, I can see all the PC in my network now, and Dam fast too, for access my server before I have to use \\server\xyz as exemple Now I see it right away.... the idea on firefox came to my mind because everything is realted to IE when browsing, will check my other problem, will not be surprise to find them solve. I have to admit that unstall vmware too,

Someone have knowledge of problem like that with firefox ? I will be quite surprise it's the problem if I'm the only one
