Sep 10 '12 at 13:35 comment added sorin I added most of my repos to the sportlight exclude list but did not seen any speacial increase in speat. Still, after 10-30s it does dispay and count 16.000 files, which is not so much.
Sep 5 '12 at 21:04 comment added jb510 I've deteremined that hiding my repos from spotlight does indeed speed things up tremendously. With them included All My Files reports nearly 500,000 files found, with them out 30,000 files and it open instantly. So the answer I guess is just "yes", but I don't have a fix other than removing the one things I actually WANT indexed. (and FYI, nothing wrong with mds, mdworker, spotlight database, all checked and rebuilt, not errors)
Sep 4 '12 at 4:52 comment added Lri Spotlight does index files in folders that have the hidden attribute set. I can reproduce the issue in the linked question, but All My Files isn't that slow in Finder. Is there anything interesting in the logs? Have you tried erasing the Spotlight index with mdutil -E /?
Sep 3 '12 at 21:13 comment added jb510 I'm only referring to a new finder window, or switching to "All My Files" on an existing finder window. I noticed that other Q and thought it was a different issue, but now thinking it's related, maybe All My Files is just always slow... Thanks for the confirmation that spotlight doesn't index invisible/hidden files, figured but better to know
Sep 3 '12 at 7:12 comment added Lri Does it apply only to file dialogs? Spotlight doesn't index files in folders that start with a period, so they aren't included in All My Files either.
