Love this product!! I've been wanting something like
this for years. Thanks you.

I notice that when I attach an external USB disk
drive, then view that drive with Windows Explorer,
the service starts indexing the drive. Then if I
want to disconnect the drive, windows won't let me
because the drive is being used by the indexing
process. To safely disconnect my drive I have to
stop the FolderSize service, disconnect, and restart
the service.

Is there are way to implement the indexing service so
that it does not lock the drive like this? If so
that would be a nice improvement.

    Sorry, that was a problem with 2.2. 2.3 now releases the
    drive when Windows unmounts it.
