I'm maintaining a classic ASP app on a Windows Server 2003 / IIS 6.0 setup. It has no code written to use the built in Indexing Service on the box, but the Indexing Service is turned on and actively indexing the default web directory.
I'm wondering if it is safe to turn off / uninstall the Indexing Service because its starting to take up a lot of space on the C drive of the server (1.8 GB)
From what I can tell this is a safe thing to do based on some limited Google-ing. But I would also like to know if IIS is using the Indexing Service at a low level that I'm not aware of.
I would even settle for a link to some recent documentation on IIS 6.0 and Indexing Service, and how IIS really uses it. The links im finding are all pretty old.
