Spotlight has ghost entries for an USB disk that I cannot get rid of. It links to a bootable usb disk that is not currently connected. I have added that disk to Spotlight Privacy. Nothing I have tried unloading, reseting, deleting and reloading spotlight. Nothing.
These ghost entries do not show up when using Finder search.
Where are Spotlight caches stored other than
.Spotlight-V100 ? There must be a place so that they survive cache rebuilding.
I am on 10.12.1 MBP and it is a clean install from two days. No use of migration assistant, etc. No external disk currently connected. Single partition.
