Hi, I've reinstalled ferret and acts_as_ferret on windows to versions
0.11.4 and 0.40 respectively.
And, I get this error message:

File Not Found Error occured:
couldn't find segments file

Can someone help me with this? Moreover, I reinstalled ferret, because I
had some problems - after some search actions my application got broken
- I was getting errors in my layout files... But this happened only
after search actions, so I tried to reinstall ferret and another problem

Thanks for help...

I will answer to this by myself - It is neccessary to delete the folders
with indexes. You can find them in /index/development/

1/ Locate all the classes that 'acts_as_ferret', and

2/ write a rake task like  :

  namespace :ferret do
    desc "rebuid the ferret indexes"
    task :rebuild   => :environment do
      [Foo, Bar].each{|klass|
        puts "rebuilding the Ferret /#{RAILS_ENV}/ index for :
        puts "  done."
