RE: description vs properties

What if FileDescription is stored directly after FileTitle?
Or do I miss something?

Hi all,

In my previous post about description of files I stated that
a description after the filepath should use less I/O than using
properties.
Well, it is true, but probably the difference is not very
significative because doc properties are stored after the title.
More or less the sequence is:
FilePath
FileTitle (equal to FilePath if no title)
Filestart   (now it is always 0)
Filesize
Properties

Properties are not sorted in the index file. So the real I/O
penalty is that, in the worst scenario, you will need to read all the 
properties before finding the description.

cu
Jose
