Vista: Rebuild indexes

April 30, 2009

If you can’t find recent emails etc. when doing a search in Vista, it’s possible that the Vista indexing service has not caught up with the newer items. You can force Vista to rebuild the index, which should solve this problem.

  1. Click the Start button, then type indexing options in the Start Search box.
  2. On the Indexing Options window, click  the Advanced button. Click Continue if you are asked for permission to access this area.
  3. On the Index Settings tab, click Rebuild in the Troubleshooting section.
