Unable to perform background re-index

I am trying to perform a background re-index and i am getting this error:

JIRA is unable to perform a background re-index at this time because the index files are either missing or corrupted.

I tried the steps listed here:  https://confluence.atlassian.com/jirakb/how-to-fix-a-jira-application-that-is-unable-to-perform-a-background-re-index-at-this-time-error-316637947.html, but i don't have an orphans.

I havent performed an upgrade or anything, just out of the blue this started happening.  Nothing was changed manually on the database, so I am not sure what is going on

I figured it out, it was a disk space issue.  I freed up some space and the index was allowed to finish.
