Subject Re: IndexWriterConfig.OpenMode.CREATE vs OpenMode.APPEND (index files)
Date Thu, 31 Jan 2013 20:36:42 GMT
Is it by design. The older API (2.4) does not have this problem. Lets say if
I have 100 updates or so.. then it will create 100 versions of those files
in the index. This would increase the number of files in the index directory
and might run into some file issues?

It would be good to just have the following instead:


why are the older files in the index folder? Are they used for anything?
BTW,can I use any other option to just overwrite the existing files in the
index directory such that there are only fewer files in the index directory.
