I have an external hard drive that contains approx 150gb of documents. I’d like to have a DT database for that drive which indexes (not importing) the files. The drive will be “offline” for the most part but I would like to be able to check if there is a file there I might need hence the index. My questions are thus
- Is 150gb too much to index? (assuming the index will be significantly smaller in size)
- Will search work well even if the drive is not connected to my machine?
