       tracker-index - List, pause, resume and command data miners indexing content


       tracker index --reindex-mime-type <mime1> [[-m [mime2]] ...]
       tracker index --file <file1> [[file2] ...]
       tracker index --import <file1> [[file2] ...]
       tracker index --backup <file> | --restore <file>


       This  command  perform  actions  on the current index. The "index" holds a snapshot of the
       working tree in a database.

       The index command allows some level of control on  existing  data  indexed,  such  as  re-
       indexing  content from a specific demographic - e.g. all JPEG images, or simply reindexing
       an existing or non-existent file.

       It may be a good idea to backup your index before an upgrade in case there  is  data  loss
       (which  should  never happen). In those cases, the backup command is made available and of
       course the restore command will import an older data set (or index) into an empty index.

       Finally, there is an import feature which makes testing or applying a "base" data set  for
       use much easier.


       -m, --reindex-mime-type=<mime1> [[-m [mime2]] ...]
              Re-index  files  which  match  the  mime  type  supplied. This is usually used when
              installing new extractors which support mime  types  previously  unsupported.  This
              forces  Tracker  to re-index those files. You can use --reindex-mime-type more than
              once per mime type.

       -f, --index=<file1> [[file2] ...]
              (Re)index a file matching the file name(s) supplied.

       -b, --backup=<file>
              Begins backing up the Tracker databases and save it to the file given.

       -o, --restore=<file>
              Begins restoring a previous backup from the file which points to  the  location  of
              the backup generated by --backup.

       i, --import=<file1> [[file2] ...]
              Allows data to be imported into the index / database by providing files with Turtle

              Multiple file arguments can be provided to import data from multiple files.

              The file argument can be either a local path or a URI. It also does not have to  be
              an absolute path.
