Catalog folder

It seems that there is some issue and we have a Catalogdata folder too Huge.  We have 16 DB’s, there are 2 DB's that have huge Catalog folders. If i stop the Search service, will the other catalogdata folders become inconsistent or any issues seen for them. I assume that once done on Active i will only be reseeding the Catalog or will it just start seeding from another copy as soon as I start the service?

Should i be planning for some Backup

Thanks in Advance !

I assume that once done on Active i will only be reseeding the Catalog or will it just start seeding from another copy as soon as I start the service? - Nopes i dont think so, you will have to reseed with a -CatalogOnly option

Yes hope you have a Good DB backup and that should be it
