Facing problems in JIRA wizard setup 1 of 3; Below is the error: Can somebody point to the right direction please.
|Could not activate indexing: org.apache.lucene.index.CorruptIndexException: Unknown format version: -11|

I suspect Thomas has nailed the core problem
There's a couple of other things I'd mention - in the long run, it would be a VERY good idea to have a dedicated and obvious place for your Jira data. Ideally, you also want to place the index on the fastest file system you can. It will work anywhere, but if you have the option to whack it on to a separate partition or even disk, do it.
I'd also avoid having spaces in your directory names. Older versions of Jira certainly didn't like it (it's more a Java thing than Jira, but still) and I don't know about newer ones. I've seen a couple of plugins that couldn't handle it too (even if the Jira they were in was working fine).
Finally, to fix your problem, once you've addressed permissions and possibly location of the index, all you need to do is re-index - even if your index is just damaged, a rebuild will give you a nice clean one. There's no need to worry about recovering it, it's all based on data copied from the database.
