I ask, as we're mid project and getting a lot of indexing which is really slowing things down.
I moved the project to a new drive this morning, and added a few 1000 jpgs to the project and sure enough, PHPStorm's indexer kicked into action, making my machine slow for the best part of an hour.
I have no idea if the indexer is adding the images, a tonne of node and composer modules I'll never need to look at, or what.
I know I can exclude folders, but is there the ability to cancel an index without restarting the app? Does the indexing process also know when a folder has been excluded, mid-index, so will skip it?
