I'm running an Automator Workflow that searches a provided directory, and then does a standard Filter Finder Items in order to make sure it's only going to be working with aliases.
Spotlight failed to find the file named "NUCLEUS SOUNDLAB Pantheon III.rfl." Please make sure privacy has not been enabled for this file in System Preferences. (-212)
The files being processed are on an external HD mounted over Firewire 800. I definitely do not have any privacy settings in spotlight at all.
Since it appears that the Spotlight index may be hosed and not working, I have been scouring for ways to force it to reindex the specific directory containing the file it's complaining about. Thus far, all attempts have failed:
- Tried adding the HD to and removing it from privacy, no indexing occurred.
- Tried using mdutil at the command line, no indexing occurred.
- Tried removing all .spotlight references and reindexing, no indexing occurred.
- Tried unmounting/remounting and rebooting, no change.
I'm at a loss as to what else to do. If I remove the "offending" file from the directory being searched in the workflow, it STILL throws the error on it - even if it's moved to a completely different volume and is very clearly NOT listed in the automator results of the task that succeeded prior to the Filter Finder Items task.
How can I get past this issue?
