If you are using the default Directory implementation in your
solrconfig.xml (NRTCachingDirectoryFactory for 4.x and later,
MMapDirectoryFactory for newer 3.x versions), then everything should be
persisted correctly.

Did you properly unmount/eject the removable volume before you unplugged
it?  On a non-windows OS, you might also want to run the 'sync'
command.  If you didn't do the unmount/eject, you can't be sure that the
filesystem was properly closed and fully up-to-date on the device.

What version of Solr did you use and how exactly did you start Solr and
the example?  How did you stop Solr?

Thanks,
Shawn
