The swap.state file is the index file.

If you think that there are objects on the disk which are
not in the swap.state file, then you should:

        1) kill squid
        2) rm swap.state
        3) start squid

Squid will traverse the cache directories and rebuild
itself from the actual cache files on disk. This could
take a long time, so be patient.
