       tracker-reset - Reset the index and configuration

       tracker reset [--hard | --soft] [--config] [--file FILE]

       The  reset command will change either your configuration	or index irre-
       versibly	and should be used with	care. Other  than  tags,  actual  data
       (e.g. files) should not be affected by this command.

       The "index" is a	link between your content (either locally or remotely)
       and how it can be found quickly using a number  of  different  queries.
       Under the hood, this is done using a database.

       Removing	 all  data and starting	again from the beginning with an empty
       data set	(which is a common use of this command)	is done	by  using  the
       hard reset option. This behaves as if Tracker was just installed.

       -r, --hard
	      This  kills  all	processes  in the same way that	tracker	daemon
	      --kill does  but	it  also  removes  all	databases.  Restarting
	      tracker-store re-creates the databases.

       -e, --soft
	      A	 soft  reset works exactly the same way	that --hard does, with
	      the exception that the backup and	journal	are not	removed. These
	      are  restored  when  tracker-store is restarted. This command is
	      useful if	you have a corrupt database  but  want	to  reply  the
	      journal to restore it to the last	known good place.

       -c, --config
	      Resets all configuration to its defaults.

       -f, --file FILE
	      Resets all indexed information about FILE, works recursively for
	      directories. Nothing will	be done	if FILE	is not	currently  in-
	      dexed.   After  deletion,	a request to reindex this data will be
	      immediately issued.

       tracker-daemon(1).  tracker(1).
