Notes About Full Text Indexing

  • A full text indexing extraction processes all documents in the datasource whether or not any additional iFilters are installed; however, if the appropriate iFilter is not installed for a particular file type, then no text will be indexed from documents of that file type. Therefore, if you install an iFilter after having run full text indexing extractions on the datasource, you will need to mark for reprocessing (since they will have already been successfully processed) all folders containing documents you want to be processed by the newly installed filter. Text from those documents will be indexed on the next processing pass.
  • You can use wildcard characters * _ ? in your full text searches, but the wildcard must be used with some other text - your search cannot be just a wildcard character. For example, bent* is OK but just * is not OK.
