.eml, sync, and search index do not cooperate RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have thousands archived e-mails as .eml files. When Search index crawls over an .eml, it changes the modification time (yes, it does). When SyncToy encounters the file, it resyncs from the net drive, changing the modification time; this causes Search Index to crawl over the file again... The whole deadly cycle is triggered by new SyncToy versions, and sometimes daylight-saving issues.

    Maybe you should occasionally fix some old bugs before they pile up and render Windows unmanagable?
