I have a problem with a Search Service IndexComponent where it has become large enough to cover up the whole of the Local System Drive. I would like to ask you some question about what are the actions that i can take in order to minify its contents.
- Should i reset the index? By doing so, will i delete all of the indexcomponent contents and refill them with a full crawl?
- I know that i can migrate it to another drive, but it is increasing its space and eventually i will have to fix space issues on the new drive, thats why it is not a viable solution
- is there someway of validating the data that the indexcomponent has? if they point to deleted files are they deleted on a full crawl?
- Currently, a full crawl is run on a weekly basis. Isn't just incremental crawls on a daily basis enough?
Thanks in advance for the help Community!
