    Problem in Indexing

    I am having a problem with the indexing.

    Indexing options opens the window with empty locations. Modify is disabled

    On clicking advance, opens the rebuilt window after a long period. The window is empty. No path for current location.

    On clicking rebuilt it will not do rebuilting of index.

    Did all the basic operations like search service off and on. Change of the Regedit. Running the troubleshout etc.

    attaching the images of the index options

    Hi Doc,

    Thank you for posting your query in Microsoft Community.

    This issue may occur due to corrupt Windows search files or settings. I suggest you to follow the below method and check if it helps.

    Method 1: I would suggest you to run search and indexing troubleshooter
    and check. Please follow these steps:

    • Type troubleshooting in the search box on taskbar.

    • Click troubleshooting in the search results.

    • Click "View all" and then click "Search and Indexing".

    • Click "Next" and follow on-screen instructions.

    Method 2: Check if Indexing and Windows Search services are enabled. If not, enable them, if they are already enabled, then disable Windows Search Service and then enable again and restart.

    • Press Windows key + R.

    • Type services in the run box, go to the Windows search services and restart them.
    Hope it helps.
