Hi PGS, <br/> <br/>For a better understanding of this issue, please read these posts: <br/> part 1 <br/> part 2 <br/> <br/>Baseline, deleting the .ci files will affect exchange search service. If the content indexing files or folder are deleted, when the Exchange search service is restarted it will automatically recreate the indexes. <br/> <br/>Best wishes!
