Hi Yany

Sometimes a collection cannot be rebuilt properly because Windows holds
locks on some of the files, and therefore the old indexes cannot be deleted.
If you get this, shut down the browser, restart the local library
server, and make sure that you don't have a file browser open to the
collection folder.

Wait a little bit (e.g. one minute) then rebuild the collection.
Hopefully it will work that time.

To make sure, you could go into the collection directory and manually
delete the old index directory before rebuilding.
