This is a continuation of a previous post originally answered by Mr.

Sparnaaij.

~~:~~

I've recreated the Index.

I have it running only on the Inbox.

Recreated the ost file.

I have rebuilt the Index.

I have reset the defaults.

Corruption occured again in four business days.

Is there anywhere else I can go from here?

Rest of previous thread below:

~~:~~

User has issues with Outlook Indexing.

The Indexing function has hung on three occassions, each separated by a day

or so.

In the first instance, I restarted indexing and removed Indexing on all

folders other than the Inbox.

In the second case, I re-created the users ost and restarted indexing again.

The user confirmed the Index had completed and the search was functioning

after each (temporary) repair.

I just received word that the indexing had failed again.

What steps would you recommend to stop the Index corruption/hang?

I'm planning on reinstalling the Windows Search to see if that will take

care of it, but I fear the issue is deeper than this.

Any suggestions?

Are you using Windows Desktop Search 4?

Are you using Windows Vista or Windows XP?

Anything logged to the Event Viewer?

When you close Outlook, does the outlook.exe process stop as well?

If Outlook doesn't fully close upon exiting, then the abrupt forced closing

of Outlook upon shutting down your system could damage your ost-file or the

Search Index. Applying Service Pack 2 for Office 2007 improves Outlook's

shutdown behavior making it less likely that other programs or add-in can

hijack the outlook.exe process and prevent it from closing.

To check your ost-file for errors, use the Inbox Repair Tool.

* - All items located in "<>" were purposely altered.

Note: The Inbox is the only item selected in the Indexer options.

I believe the Outlook.exe process does stop, but I will verify that.

I will also check out the Inbox repair tool.

Thank you. Stand by for an update.
