    I have already disabled indexing in "Services".

    "indexing" is still checked in the "properties" section of all individual drive partitions. Is it necessary or advisable to uncheck "indexing" in these areas?

    thx

    I'd right click and do it manually. When you stop index services on say for example the c drive it only stops the service on that drive.

    When you disabled index services you will see it says "local computer"

    So therefore it's only stopping the service for that drive.

    Thanks for responding. :)

    So disabling indexing on each drive would be redundant?
