I need to know if there is a way I can automate rescanning certain folders within Windows Indexing Service. Possibly through a batch file or something like that. I have several hundred folders that need to be rescanned and I don't feel like manually right clicking and hitting rescan on each one.
Here's a VBS script that should work for you. You could put this in a loop over your folder names.
In the last line, TRUE means do a full scan. Change it to FALSE to do an incremental scan.
Here's a good source for Indexing Service script samples.
