Ubuntu: Recoll - how to exclude indexing everything, then I'll add only a couple back in


How do I set Recoll to exclude everything? I will then add a small number of directories. But I mostly want it to NOT index most of the computer.

I currently have the default excluded directory in Skipped path:


And I have 2 folders in Top directories (which I understand will overwrite anything in the Skipped path):



I want to have all of the rest of the computer NOT be indexed. What would I add to the Skipped path to do that?

Thank you.


In recoll, you configure starting directories. So if you just want to index two of them, specify them as starting directories. See topdirs in official documentation (it's easy to find it also in GUI).
