Send Logs to Desktop creates a .zip file containing the X1 Search logs files to your Desktop. This is helpful when X1 Customer Care requests these files for analysis. Note: This is not the same as the Diagnostic Files requested by X1 Customer Care in many cases.

Ignore accents in characters will search only for the recognized characters, disregarding additional accents.

Insert word breaks around Asian language characters (This one is self explanatory). 

Allow Indexing when on battery power allows X1 to continue indexing when you are on battery power. If you select this option, you should be wary of your overall battery power.

Note: By default, X1 will not index when the computer is on battery power.

 

Indexing Priority

Never delay indexing if PC is in use allows X1 to index whether or not you are using your machine. This is the most aggressive approach because regardless of how many resources you are using, if X1 is scheduled to index, it will take those resources and update your indexes. This approach is suggested for people that have frequently changing data sets.

Delay indexing up to 'X' minutes if PC is in use causes X1 to pause indexing UP TO the amount of minutes set IF you are using your machine. For example, if you select 30 minutes, and it is time to index the data sources based on the Scheduling Options for each data source, and you are using your machine, X1 will continue to delay indexing until you either stop using your machine for at least 20 seconds or if the 30 minute indexing delay is up. At this point, X1 will proceed to index. Once the indexing process has begun, X1 will not stop or delay indexing if you decide to use your computer again. This is to avoid corruption in the index files.

Always delay indexing if PC is in use is the least aggressive approach, never allowing X1 to index if you are using your machine. However, if you do not use your machine for 20 seconds minimum, and it is time for X1 to index the data sources based on the Scheduling Options for each data source, X1 will proceed to index. Once the indexing process has begun, X1 will not stop or delay indexing if you decide to use your computer again. This is to avoid corruption in the index files.

Note: If you need to safely pause indexing at any moment, simply click on the Pause button for the data source. This will help prevent index file corruption.
