Search in File Manager


Hi all,

I am having problems searching inside file manager. Whenever I search inside filemanager I get the following error:

VirtualPathProvider 'SiteGlobalFiles', Search Error: 
C:\EPiServer\VPP\<project>\Global\index not a directory

I have checked my services and I can see that the following services are running:

EpiServer CMS Indexing service
EpiServer CMS Log Service
EpiServer CMS Scheduler Service

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thank you

This issue was resolved by stopping and starting the EPiServer CMS Indexing service. I get the feeling that this service is a bit tempramental as I have EPiServer running on my home machine (which has Windows 7) and the searching works fine. However, on my work XP machine I had to stop and start the EPiServer CMS Indexing service for it to work.

Thank You
