    Help with "Recreate Full Text Search Index"

    This process is maybe going to take even longer than I initially expected. I let it run all day Saturday, overnight and into Sunday (it's 6 pm now, so that's an additional 36 hours, for 65 hours total) and we've only reached 29/56. I've let it run almost uninterrupted for three days straight and we're still just over halfway to where we should be, which seems about in line with user Monique Reta's experience above, namely, that the process might take up to a week. Really exasperating. User DTLow says it shouldn't take this long--although I do note that the process hasn't stopped. I can't tell whether there's some technical problem with my database specifically, or if this is just the norm for a big, text-heavy database... should I be expecting this level of lack of search access each time I upgrade from here on out? Time will tell, I guess.

    25/56 as of 6:30 am (roughly 29 hours now).

    Started it up around 10 pm tonight and will let it run overnight again.

    Up to 23/56 after 21 hours. Closing the computer up for a bit though, got to take it on the road. We'll see if it picks up again afterward.

    Fifteen hours in, and the search returns 10/56 notes. Not quite 20% of the way done? At that rate this'll be a 75-hour process.

    How many notes do you have, if I may ask? I'm trying to get a sense of how long it takes for databases of different sizes.

    (By way of monitoring my progress, I can note that when doing the search on mobile, "surfing" yields 56 results, as contrasted to the 6 results in the pic above. So still a ways to go....)

    At 8:38 pm (approx 5 and a half hours after "resetting the clock") I can find *some* of the notes with a search (though not the one pictured above yet). Still, a sign that things are going well...

    At 4 pm (after approx five hours, with the computer being open and shut and rebooted once during that time) I clicked "recreate the full text search index" from the Troubleshooting menu, effectively "resetting the clock." I'm going to try to let it run un-molested for longer than five hours. User gazumped, above, suggests it might take around eleven hours for a database around this size to be fully indexed?

    That's kinda where I started this thread, struggling with that exact fix and the question of how long it would take. I think one can opt to "recreate" prematurely--not allowing Evernote to "get there" on its own--and "recreating" just "resets the clock" on the (long) indexing process. I've never found anything (including the Activity Log) that gives a sense of how the process is progressing or when it's done, so the best solution is often probably just to wait a bit longer.

    Here's a representative example, exactly the same problem as in February.

    UPDATE: I did eventually solve this problem back in February, although I wish I'd recorded how, since I'm having the same problem now in November, having just updated to 7.5.2. I think the solution was something boring, like "ignore everything and wait." I upgraded at around 10:20 am (on 11/8/2018) and now (10:55) search is not finding a number of notes that I know are there. But rather than panicking, forcing a re-index, or rebuilding the database I'm just going to let Evernote run as normal, and I'll wait to see how long it is before searching begins to return to normal. I'll post updates.

    Oh, yes, thank you--I don't use any Local Notebooks, and I was careful to get everything synced before I began this process.

    Just to continue to use this thread to track my slow groping toward a solution, I went ahead and rebuilt the Evernote for Mac database using these steps (found elsewhere), though this also didn't fix the problem, and in fact it triggered a previously dormant known bug for Snippet View in 6.11, so things have actually gotten worse... 1. Open Evernote for Mac 2. Select Evernote > About Evernote 3. Press and hold the Option key on your keyboard and select Open database folder (keep this folder open) 4. Select Evernote > Quit Evernote from the menu bar 5. Move the numbered folder from the database folder to your computer's desktop * If you have more than one numbered folder, move each one 6. Open Evernote and log in to your Evernote account
