Tips to resolve “An unexpected error…” error message in MS Access

Microsoft Find Fast Indexer is a Windows application whose primary function is to build indexes to speed up the search process of MS Office documents when you have lost or forgotten their file names. The indexer indexes the MS office documents automatically without any user-interaction. However, you might receive an error message when the indexer is unable to perform indexing with a particular MS Access database file. The root cause for the occurrence of the error message is the corruption or damage of MS Access database file. To resolve the error message, the best way is to restore the data from an updated backup. However, in case of no valid database file backup or backup falling short of restoring the lost data, you will need to use powerful repair access application.

Consider a practical case, where you encounter the below error message when the Microsoft Find Fast Indexer program runs:

“An unexpected error occurred while Find Fast was indexing the file .”

Data stored in the Access database file become inaccessible after the above error message occurs.


Microsoft Find Fast Indexer program displays the above error message when it attempts to index a damaged MS Access database file. The error message occurs only when Microsoft Find Fast Indexer attempts to read that document.


To fix the above error, you will need to follow the below methods:

Repair the corrupted document by using the inbuilt repair utility known as “Compact and Repair.”
Move the damaged document to the drive that you are not using for the indexing operation.
If the problem persists, then turn off the Microsoft Find Fast Indexer.

However, if all the three options fail to resolve the issue and the Access database file still remains corrupted, then you will need to use advanced Access Repair application. Such Access Database Repair applications employ advanced scanning algorithms to scan and repair the corrupted database components. These Access Database Repair applications can successfully repair Access database files like .accdb and .mdb. Built with highly graphical user-interface, these tools are easy to understand and implement.
