beagle is going to search your home directory by default and not much
else. now, this includes files in you home directory, and things like
im logs(gaim), email(evolution)
, rss feeds (blam/liferea) etc, since they are all cached in you home
directory. using beagle-settings, you can add/exclude paths to be
searched, including an external disk i would assume. you should just be
able to include the path the where its mounted.
if its a removable device, well, i dunno how beagle will handle it when
its not there. it might just see and empty directory and do nothing, or
it might remove the items it thought were tehre from its index, only to
re add them when teh device is connected. now i'm curious and am off to
ask the beagle list.
