comment How to index one folder on a (huge) smb shared drive for Spotlight?
Is there any way to make a mac treat a folder as a drive? It's easy to do in Windows but my research on Mac so far has only turned up workarounds that don't suit my case (example)

Interesting idea - might not work in my case though since there are hundreds of folders managed by scores of teams, some of whom might need Mac indexing in future.

Huh, not good, that drive is massive. Is there any way to index just one directory?

comment How to mount and name a volume if it's not already mounted with a startup script
So can I check if the volume already exists by checking if the directory already exists in Volumes? Trusting that when it is not mounted it'll be removed? Or is it not that simple?

comment How to mount and name a volume if it's not already mounted with a startup script
I'm now seeing some examples of AppleScript mount seeming to use & nameVar to set the name, but this seems to contradict what I've read elsewhere - e.g. hints.macworld.com/article.php?story=20120211184732735

Are you sure you posted this in the right place? I don't quite see how it relates to the question.
