Delete only one content source RRS feed

  • Question

  • To delete the content; reset the index and using Clear-FASTSearchContentCollection *name contentName command

    If we have more than one content on the sp, how can we delete each of them's content seperately. I mean, I want to remove one of them's content but the other one's should remain.

    I can't find any cmdlets about it.

    Thanks in advance.

  • The only way I´ve found is to delete the content source, and re-add it. This will clear out the content for just that one source. It´s not the ideal solution, but it works and deletes the data from both the crawler database and the FAST index.

    There is a export/import script for content sources at the TechNet Gallery which works fairly well (except it won´t export everything). I´m working on improving this script and creating a powershell commandlet for it.
