    Exclude start menu from indexing?

    Hi all,

    Got a bit of a problem. I've moved my users folder and all of that good stuff off my SSD. I wanted to switch indexing back on, I've moved the indexing location to my HDD and only selected HDD partitions but I can't ditch start menu indexing, which is still stuck on my SSD in ProgramData.

    Does anyone have any ideas on how to remove or exclude the start menu folder from indexing?

    In folder options (control panel) you have to turn on show hidden files and folders. Then you can turn it off in file indexing just like the rest of the locations.
