Ever since 2018.3.2, I am constantly getting the "Scanning files to index..." process. This happens after every save or build process. It runs for a really long time and blocks almost all of my operations from file search to basic navigations. Sometimes opening and closing the Settings window pauses or terminates the indexing process, which allows me to continue working again.
I have to roll back to 2018.3.1, which works fine. I am on a windows machine with VMWare. In the vm is Linux which hosts IntelliJ. My project uses Java 6 and Git. My computer has 32 gigs of RAM with 8 allocated to the VM with 4 core processors.
