After upgrading to Catalina a month ago, both Houdahspot and spotlight are unable to find many files. If I know the name, I can find the file using the command line `find` command.  How do I fix this?

The Spotlight index may also have become damaged. Try rebuilding it:
  1. Go to System Preferences > Spotlight > Privacy
  2. Add your startup disk – not just individual folders – to the list
  3. Wait a bit, to be sure the old Spotlight index is deleted
  4. Remove the startup disk from the Privacy list
  5. Leave the computer running overnight to rebuild the index
