EnScript to export x bytes around search hits - UPDATED

A reader asked if I would modify my original EnScript here so that instead of exporting one HTML file with all the exported search hits, that it would export one HTML for each search hit. He was dealing with 50,000+ search hits and the EnScript was creating one huge HTML file and it would not load in a browser.

Therefore, I have modified the original EnScript to create one HTML file for every search hit and also place them into categorized folders based on the keyword.

While it doesn't do the sweet html file the search hits filter named "Export Search Hits with Buffering" will export selected search hits into a single large file or a file per hit (which does result in a LOT of files BTW). There is also a Bookmark filter named "Export Sweeping Bookmarks with Buffering" that does the same thing for highlighted data bookmarks.

I do love the organization into categorized folders. Great idea

We've been using this script with success, however it is running extremely slow. I have 75,000 hits to export and decided to export them in chunks of 2,500-5,000 to keep the HTML files manageable, but the export rate is mere 10's of KB per minute. I'm wondering if the size of the file with the hit impacts the script's performance at all? Most of the files we have with hits are 2-6GB plus about 25,000 in 68GB of unallocated. Any insight is appreciated Lance, thank you!
