Soon we'll see the rollout of Windows 10 May 2020 Update. Among other things, this new version of Windows 10 will feature a fix that will make search indexing more efficient. The new way the search indexing feature works will help boost system performance on systems with mechanical disks, and may even improve SSD performance a little bit.
The new indexing service is more efficient when it’s running, which will help spinning drives maintain a minimum level of performance and avoid noticeable lag. Windows 10 build 2004 also added a feature that throttles or pauses indexing activity when the user is transferring or deleting files. That could even help boost SSD performance, depending on your configuration.
