I have a large remote (fuse-mounted) drive that I would like to be indexed with spotlight. After executing
sudo mdutil -i on </path/to/volume> spotlight creates the .Spotlight-V100 directory which I presume includes the index for the folder.
When this drive is unmounted and re-mounted, it seems to lose the index. Is it possible for me to force spotlight to import the already-existing index instead of re-indexing each time?
EDIT: The mounted volume is xfs, and I am running OS X 10.11.4
