I just did a full restore from Time Machine and noticed that my Spotlight Privacy tab was empty. Am I correct in assuming that this information is not backed up by Time Machine? I believe it's stored in
/.Spotlight-V100/Store-V1/Exclusions.plist, and therefore it shouldn't be backed up because Time Machine doesn't back up a lot of the hidden files, especially in the root directory (
/.fseventd being the example that comes to mind).
So is it true that it isn't backed up? And why isn't it stored in
