So updatedb was taking too long, as in never finishing, I decided to try
and find out why. However when I entered (after much googling):

nice -n -19 updatedb --findoptions="-D stat"

it kept telling me the option was not found.

In file C:\cygwin64\bin\updatedb I moved $FINDOPTIONS to
before $SEARCHPATHS in all the lines it occurs.


now it seems to work flawlessly. Even after I took out
the --prunepaths='/cygdrive' because it was looping on the drives in it. It
finished before I finished this email.
