As P. Di Stolfo said, you can Rebuild the index now. It takes a while and
slows down your computer while it's working.
Or you can just keep working and wait until the index gets updated in the
background. Depending on the size and number of your data files, this may
take just a short time, but it may take several days, because the indexing
slows or stops whenever you are using the computer. If you leave it running
overnight, or maybe while you are out to lunch, the job might (or might not)
be done by the time you come back.
I don't think I'd like to have my computer just stop responding to me while
it rebuilds my whole index after every time I delete or add or move a file.
Some of the indexing behavior can be adjusted by using Control Panel |
Indexing Options, as P. Di Stolfo said.
