I'm having an issue where old, deleted files are still showing up in search. Below I've gone into a little more detail:
I installed drop box onto my PC so I can WFH and still have access to all my files/ documents, drop box didn't seem to work and since I downloaded it from AUR I assumed it was outdate so I uninstalled it. then after noticing my SSD was 95% full I found a hidden folder called drop box and inside was all my documents from the company drop box. I had already deleted the drop box application by this point so deleted the folder.
However when I use the search function on the Application Launcher its still showing the files from said hidden folder. So far I have tried the below:
- Restarting PC
- Clearing search history
and neither of them have worked.
Some details that might help diagnose the issue:
- I'm using the KDE Desktop
- I get the below output when trying to open one of the files:
Unable to run the command specified. The file or folder /home/joe/XXXXXX/XXXXXX/XXXXXX/XXXXXX/XXXXXX/XXXXX.pdf does not exist.
- Any info I can provide to help get this sorted I will gladly do
Can anyone advise on this?
