I upgraded to version 9 of Datashare and it fails.

To fix the issue:
  1. 1.
    Stop Datashare. If Datashare is running, close the Terminal window (the window that opens when you start Datashare):
Click 'Terminate':
  1. 1.
    Open your Terminal (or a new window in your Terminal) and copy and paste:
  • If you're using Mac: rm -Rf ~/Library/Datashare/index
  • If you're using Windows: rd /s /q "%APPDATA%"\Datashare\index
  • If you're using Linux: rm -Rf ~/.local/share/datashare/index
  1. 1.
    Press Enter
  2. 2.
    Restart Datashare (here are the instructions for Mac, for Windows and for Linux)
  3. 3.
    Index documents again: go to 'Analyse your documents' and click 'Extract text':
