Hi. I'm pro user of Filelocator.

When I start update index, what I expect is to index only recently added or modified files instead of all the files.
However, I think Filelocator re-indexes or checks all the files.
So it takes me some longer time than I expect.
Is it normal? Or is there any way to shorten the time ?

When you 'Update' an index only new or modified files are updated, however to discover if new files have been added or files have been removed or modified the update needs to enumerate the whole file store. If the file store is on a slow disk or network location this can take a bit of time.
