What is the difference between zone mode and easy mode?
Zone mode is used for searching fixed common folders and is suitable for long-term usage. In this mode, the documents in the zones will be scanned in advance, so the search will be quick, and all the search results will be complete.
Easy mode is used for out-of-zone folders or frequently-changed search scope. This is the temporary usage mode. In this mode, the documents are not scanned until you click the search button, so the search is slower; and it will show the search results as soon as a new result is found. The searching will proceed until you click the stop button or all the documents in the target folder have been scanned.
