I used to use the command
sudo mdutil -i on ~/Dropbox-encfs to enable indexing for that partition once it had been mounted (typically, I remounted every time I rebooted).
However, since upgrading to OS X 10.9, entering the same command returns the error
Error: unknown indexing state. Indexing and searching on my main root partition continues to work:
~$ sudo mdutil -a -s /: Indexing enabled. /Users/myuserdirectory/Dropbox-encfs: Error: unknown indexing state.
Has something changed in OS X 10.9 that might cause this? How would I go about debugging or fixing this problem?
I'm using encfs version 1.7.4p1. I've already tried turning on and off the indexing (
-i off), and using the
-E flag to mdutil to erase the store.
I mount the encfs partition using the following command:
sudo encfs --public -ovolname=Dropbox-encfs ~/Dropbox/.encfs-crypted ~/Dropbox-encfs
Aside from the indexing problem, the mounted encfs partition otherwise seems to work fine.
I should add that I am also seeing warnings of this form in
