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.

Adam BrownSr Solutions ArchitectCommented: has an explanation of how you can rebuild the indexes. This happens in exchange from time to time and the only way to fix it is rebuild the Index. That can be done either by deleting the files or by replicating the index from another database copy.
