Make sure Find is selected under Admin / Config / Search Configuration.

Hi Hannah

What you are describing looks more like trouble with Episerver Search and not Episerver Find.

Make sure Find alternatives are at the top (drag and drop). Imo it's not necessary to have both of them selected unless you exclude a lot in your Find index.

Found the solution - it was the directoryPath that was the issue was that the path was hard coded where it should have been [appDataPath]. Once this was updated everything started working as expected! 

Thank you all very much for your advice !
