Items in an Index - Outlook Upgrade --> Search Broken. Need a Ballpark Figure of Items in an Index.


Just hit a HUUUUUUGE bolder.  Seems like upgrading to Outlook 2016 disables...Outlook search!@ :(((  Here is a official MS Office webpage where it shows...1,100 people with the same problem and over 200 replies since...2015!!!  And, then here's the same issue on EE.

Need a ballpark figure so I can see what is and isn't working: how many items indexed in a 2Gb PST + a 14Gb archive?  Yesterday the index said "complete" at around 150,000 items indexed.  That seems small to me given the size of the files.  For a 2Gb & 14 Gb PST, main and archive, roughly how many items should show in "Items Indexed"?

I have 131,000 items indexed. That is Outlook and my Documents. That have been a normal level of indexed items for me for several years.  That represents about 10 GB of Outlook PST files (Main plus 7 archive files).

So I would say your result is normal from what I can see.
