Why delete Lucene Index directory to re-run Alfresco?

Hi all,

I had the problem when starting Tomcat server and It said:
The store 'avm://sitestore' has a duplicate root node entry.

I followed the Jared Ottley's solution found here:
And it worked just fine.

It says that you have to point the dir.root for alf_data to a phisical directory and then change the index.recovery.mode to AUTO. Finally it says that you have to delete the Lucene-Indexes folder (on alf_data) and restart.

My question is, why did I have to delete this folder in order to make alfresco work again?

best regards
