When you perform a full crawl, all content specified by the content source is crawled even if the content already exists in the index. To perform a full crawl, you must crawl the content defined in a particular content source individually. Note that using the Start all crawls link on the Manage Content Sources page results in all content sources being crawled using an incremental crawl, unless the system detects that a full crawl is required.


To start, pause, resume, or stop a crawl of a content source
  1. Verify that the user account that is performing this procedure is a service application administrator for the Search service application.

  2. In Central Administration, in the Quick Launch, click Application Management.

  3. On the Application Management page, under Service Applications, click Manage service applications.

  4. On the Service Applications page, in the list of service applications, click the Search service application that you want.

  5. On the Search Administration page, in the Quick Launch, under Crawling, click Content Sources.

  6. On the Manage Content Sources page, in the list of content sources, point to the name of the content source that you want, click the arrow that appears, and then click one of the following menu items:

    • Start Full Crawl. The value in the Status column changes to Crawling Full for the selected content source. The value in the Status column does not automatically change when the crawl is complete. To update the Status column, refresh the Manage Content Sources page by clicking Refresh.

    • Start Incremental Crawl. The value in the Status column changes to Crawling Incremental for the selected content source. The value in the Status column does not automatically change when the crawl is complete. To update the Status column, refresh the Manage Content Sources page by clicking Refresh.

    • Resume Crawl. The value in the Status column changes back to Crawling Full or Crawling Incremental for the selected content source.

    • Pause Crawl. The value in the Status column changes to Paused for the selected content source.

    • Stop Crawl. You must click OK to confirm that you want to stop the crawl.
