    Search Indexer Always Resetting

    Hi, so I noticed that my Search Indexer keeps resetting and starting from scratch. It gets to a very big number of indexed files a few hours later, then resets back to a low number whenever I check it. I went to the Event Viewer and I found what is crashing it:

    The search service has detected corrupted data files in the index {id=4810 - onecoreuap\base\appmodel\search\search\ytrip\common\util\jetutil.cpp (604)}. The service will attempt to automatically correct this problem by rebuilding the index.

    Where is "jetutil.cpp" located at? I want to delete this file. If Windows 10 doesn't like that, then I will to sfc /scannow. Please help me find where this file is located.

    Hi, suggest you run
    chkdsk p: \F

    on your drives, where p is an arbitrary drive letter.

    jetutil.cpp isn't on my PC: If you use a search utility such as Ultrasearch (free), let it index, then search ('instant' find as you type) you should find it.

    Freeware tools such as Ultrasearch, Locate32 (which I habitually use) and the better known Everything (I prefer the others) are much less problematic. However Windows search is necessary in some instances, and does index textual content.

    You can also try the search index troubleshooter.

    If you search the web for jetutil.cpp there are quite a few references- a quick scan showed nothing helpful - you may like to spend more time on that.

    Ok I did: chkdsk p: /F
    Computer restarted and did that process, and restarted again.

    I went to that site you posted, I've already done all these steps previously when I searched the internet on how to fix this. So now I'm just hoping that a few hours later from now, I will check up on the Search Indexer and hope it is no longer indexing files (which means that it has completely with no error).

    But a question to programmers... where is this location at: "
    There's no folders on the computer with that directory. This must be somewhere else on the computer. Help me find it so I can exclude this "oncecoreuap" folder from being indexed.

    I've indicated how to search for the file- have you tried that? (Unless it's in a folder with special permissions so it can't be accessed normally).

    Make sure you don't have search set to index something it will have trouble with- like the search index?

    Here's how to see chkdsk results after a restart:

    yes i've tried using other programs to find that file, yet that directory doesnt exist anywhere, hence the file doesn't exist. I found a few onecoreuap.dll, and I think that inside the dll is where that file is. Can anyone clarify which onecoreuap.dll I need to delete?

    Reading the error message again
    The search service has detected corrupted data files in the index
    - I think it's telling you the search index is corrupted. Not sthg that's being indexed.

    You'll get more info from the event log:

    The reason why it got corrupted and had to delete and reset is because of the corruption in that file. I've seen it many times in the Event Viewer. This .cpp file IS the reason why it's resetting. Can you please only help me find this file?

    Look in the example I've quoted. I think you have to look as per that post to identify what's being indexed.

    Look at how they got that info.

    I tried looking for that log file in the folder. There isn't any. I tried opening all the other files in Notepad (except for the big edb file, which is the indexed searches file) and I cannot find anything in those files.

    I just hope I can narrow down the location of that one file. I've seen files with that name in
    Windows/syswow, system32 and winsxs. I'm gonna use old school reliable logic (tedious, takes much more time but practically guaranteed) and exclude those locations one-by-one-by-one or so to narrow down the location of that file and I guess exclude the folder that contains that file. =S

    How come no one else is experiencing this? This started happening a few days ago. I haven't downloaded any new apps or installed anything new. It just started happening by itself. Maybe from some Windows Updates?

    I found the general location of where this file is; it is located in the WinSxS folder within Windows. I Excluded the WinSxS folder from being Indexed. Now the Search Indexing Options is complete, and not re-/creating the Index like it always was doing. Also, it's useless to have WinSxS indexed anyways; there are no personal files in there that would have a possibility for me to look for them.

    Cool. I nailed it.
