Index each volume

This tip is valid for: Both BeOS and Haiku

If you’re creating new indices to enable searching on additional or custom attributes and you have more than one BFS volume on your system, remember that you must create the index on the volume on which the files are to live. Indexes do not span multiple volumes. If you create the index on the wrong volume, you’ll get no search results on your queries.
