How can I completely reindex a case in FTK/Lab/Enterprise?
Please follow the steps below:
- In the case management window, right-click the case and click Remove Generated Index
- Click OK when prompted.
- Open the case folder and confirm that the "dts_idx" directory has been deleted. (NOTE: On large cases it may take a few minutes to completely delete this folder).
- Open the case and use Additional Analysis with the dtSearch Text Index option to index your case.
You may want to reindex all items in a case if it appears that your index has become corrupt. The steps above will help you do this.
