recently I re-mounted a harddisk and the deskbar applet now has problems finding my files (that it had previously indexed); the search results show the number of files/folders, but the files themselves are not displayed any more. I wanted to re-index everything, which maybe would solve the problem, but I have no clue how to erase the existing index- files and re-index my file system. Does anyone know how to do this? As far as I can see, The Deskbar-applet website has no tutorial of manual.

You can try stopping and disabling the Index Service from services.msc, reboot and then re-enable it.
