2024-05 Cumulative Update for .NET Framework 3.5 and 4.8.1 for Windows 11, version 23H2 for x64 (KB5037591) – 15/6/24
2024-05 Cumulative Update for Windows 11 Version 23H2 for x64-based Systems (KB5037771) – 15/6/24

Windows updates above cancelled my Indexing and wiped the Drives Indexing Options.
The Modify button was not accessible in the Indexing Options so could not add drives.
Running Privacy & Security > Searching Windows no folders were showing or could be added or excluded.
Running Privacy & Security > Searching Windows Indexer Troubleshooter stated Searchindexer.exe had recently failed.
Also had email sent/received 14/6/24 disappear.

I rolled back to the to Update (2024-04 Cumulative Update for Windows 11 Version 23H2 for x64-based Systems (KB5036893 – 10/6/24) and the problem seems to be resolved.

But now having to start indexing my drives!
Hope this helps if others are having this issue.
