Default Allow files on this drive ... indexing

I've read Avid suggests unchecking this for your session drive. What about drives designated for Kontakt libraries and Samples? Seems like it could make sense to leave it checked on those drives but looking for someone with more knowledge on this subject to weigh in here. Thanks

Un-compress & un-index all drives. It's a standard optimization:


Hard Disk Optimizations
This optimization allows your hard drives to work more efficiently when recording and playing back audio files, and can sometimes resolve DAE Error -9073.

Open the Start menu and click on File Explorer.
Click This PC in the left column.
Right-click on the first drive you intend to use for audio storage.
Choose Properties.
If checked, uncheck Compress this drive to save disk space.
If checked, uncheck Allow files on this drive to have contents indexed.
Click Apply and then OK.
Repeat the process for each of your audio drives.
