Full Crawl with/without Index Reset


  • What is the difference when a Full Crawl is performed with and without an index reset?

  • When you reset the search index, all content is immediately removed from the search index and users will not be able to retrieve search results. When you just perform a Full crawl it just "hot swaps" the space, therefore users are still able to search during a Full crawl without index reset. Source:
