If you organise your files you dont need it... filemanager SEARCH still works, just search the relevant partition or folder hierarchy. It just does it manually rather than using an index file so it is a tad slower... so the search might take 10 seconds rather than 2. And all that thrashing aint good on SSD or on HDD rigs you want to run low power, cool, and silent.
... some things in life just drive you bonkers. Especially the rubbish you see in forum posts
