I have a folder on my mac which I access occasionally, let's say its name is
I usually hit
CMD + Space to bring up Spotlight, then type the name into it and it will be the first result.
Recently, Spotlight crashes instead, as soon as I type
Folder and before typing any more letters. If I type any other query, it works normally. I can tell it crashes since the Loupe icon briefly disappears from the menu bar (Spotlight restarts immediately) and looking in
system.log in Console shows this, whenever the problem occurs:
Oct 4 18:27:21 my-macbook-pro com.apple.xpc.launchd (com.apple.Spotlight): Service exited due to signal: Illegal instruction: 4 sent by exc handler
I'm currently having Spotlight rebuild its index, but what else could I try? Specifically, are there any debugging tools available to get a more detailed stack trace of what's causing the app to crash?
My OS version is 10.12.6
