The Everything database is stored in the file Everything.db in %LOCALAPPDATA%\Everything

Please make sure Everything is not running when you delete this file.
Everything will rebuild this file the next time it is started.

Suggestion: try it with a simple folder first, instead of the complete share.
That way, if there are "connection problems" you don't have to wait until the entire share is indexed (that might take a while ..).

So add "X:\some folder" instead of "X:\" (resp. "\\server\share\some folder" instead of "\\server\share".

If that goes OK, you can replace it with the original share and wait (will take time ..) until it is indexed.
