How Do I ‘Explode’ a Folder (Windows 7)

‘Explode’ a Folder

You may come across a bug(How do I ‘explode’ a folder ) which causes Windows.edb to grow until the drive is completely filled.

However, this did allow  to find what appears to be a bug in this area: changing the location of the index doesn’t survive restarting the Windows Search service!  Which means that relocating the index doesn’t work. Hmmm. Edit: Workaround is to stop the Windows Search service before moving the index in the UI. The service will then restart and the configuration change will stick.

run the indexing options control panel and click rebuild index.
