10.5: Disable Spotlight during Time Machine backups
Authored by: lokon1979 on Oct 28, '08 10:25:24PM

spotlight indexing only do once, after that it works on the fly. sounds like a problem to me if the indexing ever create a, problem, to time machine.

the situation to most people should be, connect a fresh drive, spotlight finished index it in seconds before you can ever set up time machine. even you connect a drive with data, just wait till spotlight indexing the drive before setting up time machine should do the trick.

i think you should turn off time machine, add your drive to spotlight privacy list and remove it again so it will create a fresh new index. then at last turn back on time machine
