When running the Applicant Index Build process (HRS_SRCH_IDX) using segmentation, some of the child HRS_SRCH_APP processes finish unsuccessfully because of the following error:

Error removing directory
d:\psoft\hrprod\pt851\hcm91\data\search\HRS_ResumeText\HR91TEST\ENG: file o
r one of its subdirectories was not removable: The specified directory could
not be removed. (2,828) HRS_COMMON.SEARCH.BUS.ApplicantIndex.OnExecute

Name:build Statement:267 Called from:HRS_SRCH_APP.MAIN.GBL.defa


  1. Main menu Recruiting --> Administration --> Build Applicant Index
  2. Add new run control id
  3. Point attachment temp directory to c:\temp
  4. Use segmentation size (e.g 365)
  5. Run process with create new mode.
