X1 content indexer

I have made two attempts to use X1 to index my very large # of files. Here we are talking about more than a million.

My conclusions is that X1 is not suitable for "power" users. It just doesn't work, and it uses too many resources. X1 might be good for people who have, lets say, 1000 files to index. It stops after 274K files (i.e. 1/4 million).

X1 is also somewhat hard to use. It has a strange interface, with menu items hidden under other menu items. It is difficult to figure out what it is doing. It says it is creating a new index, constantly, even though there are 274K files already indexed. It puts up a useless list of files on my screen that I didn't ask for.
