Removable volumes

Recoll used to have no support for indexing removable volumes (portable disks, USB keys, etc.). Recent versions have improved the situation and support indexing removable volumes in two different ways:

  • By storing a volume index on the volume itself (Recoll 1.24).

  • By indexing the volume in the main, fixed, index, and ensuring that the volume data is not purged if the indexing runs while the volume is mounted. (Recoll 1.25.2).
