I've disabled the file indexing service in Windows 7 (as per this answer) which worked like a charm.
My questions are:
- Does disabling the service also remove any existing cache? The answer linked to above suggests that it doesn't.
- If it doesn't how could I safely remove it myself?
Windows is installed on a not terribly large SSD so:
- I don't really need an index and
- I would like to reclaim as much space as possible.
