I'd like to back up (and be able to restore upon Windows 7 reinstall) all my heavily-customised Indexing Options settings.
e.g. I have VERY customised list of file types that I have ticked in the Advanced Options, to the "Index Properties and File Contents" type instead of just "Properties" - which is kind of essential for really properly searching my computer and my documents. Like publisher files, have text in them that I really need to be able to find, and by default it's unticked....so I have many file types like this ticked to actually be properly indexed.
And what a pain it would be to have to manually go through and tick every one upon system reinstall (not to mention, remember/note down what ones that I ticked, beforehand!).
Are the settings stored somewhere in the registry? In some system file inside Windows/USER folder?
Let's hunt down for where it's stored. Nothing in Windows can't be backed up.
