File Indexing

In PersonalBrain Core or Pro, any files that are added internally or linked to will be indexed for Advanced searches (Windows only, Mac indexing is handled by Spotlight in version 5.x +). Files in linked folders, or files in a subfolder of the internal thought folder will not be indexed. Here's a list of the files indexed in Windows (provided by Harlan in this post).
