Removing a Vault Index

When you remove a vault index, only the index catalog is removed; no physical file archives are affected by this operation.

To remove an index from a vault archive:

  1. From the Windows Start menu, click SOLIDWORKS PDM > Administration to open the Administration tool.
  2. Log into the vault whose index you want to remove.
  3. Right-click Indexing and select Open.

    If prompted, log in as a user with administrative access.

  4. Clear Index File Vault Archives and click OK.
