I have tried to re-index my external drive by removing it from Spotlight's privacy settings and putting it back there. I tried with mdutil in the terminal and I've got the following log:
bb:~ bb$ mdutil -i on -d /Volumes/TOSHIBA\ EXT /Volumes/TOSHIBA EXT: Indexing and searching disabled. bb:~ bb$ mdutil -i on /Volumes/TOSHIBA\ EXT /Volumes/TOSHIBA EXT: Indexing enabled. bb:~ bb$
I tried it with the root password and when I look for files on my external drive I still cannot find them through spotlight even though I know they are on the drive and I can find them by browsing folders.
Is there another way to index my drive?
