    Rebuilding the Index problem.


    I have a directory with lots of files and it sorts very slowly, so I rebuilt my index via "Indexing Options" hoping to get some performance improvements. Didn't work out the way I hoped. My context menu in File Manager is very slow when I choose NEW to create a new folder or file. Some other things slowed down too. Can someone tell me what I need to do to correct the problem and maybe why some things slowed down?

    Thanks in advance for your assistance.

    :)
     

  2. Force a rebuild of the start menu program index/database in Windows 10

    There is a possibility that the permissions on Windows Search Directories were affected during the upgrade to Windows 10. I may have a solution to try. Follow these steps:

    1. Navigate to Control Panel > All Control Panel Items > Troubleshooting
    2. In the search box (top right of Troubleshooting window) type indexing
    3. Select Search and Indexing
    4. Click Next
    5. Select My problem isn't listed above and click Next
    6. Enter a description of the problem (or leave it blank and all possibilities will be tested) and click next
    7. If the option appears, select Try troubleshooting as an administrator
    8. The scan begins to address the issue

    Once the issue is corrected return to Indexing Options in Control panel to rebuild it (Control Panel > Indexing Options > Advanced > Rebuild)
