  1. When restarting after downloading the latest version I got the message
    “Configuration error.
    Configuration could not be read. Copernic Desktop Search will continue to run but the settings will be reverted to the default configuration. The existing index will be erased.”
    I have copied the Index folder, but do not wish to lose the index, how do I proceed please?
