I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

For this specifically if the Catalog Directory for a specific database is corrupt, you need to use the resetsearchindex.ps1 script.

See the below link for details. (link below is specifically states 2007 however this is the same for 2010)
