10.5: Disable Spotlight during Time Machine backups
Authored by: Johnny_B on Nov 30, '08 06:57:04AM
I used ACL to "disable" Spotlight. Spotlight will still try to index it, but will give up and fail after some seconds...
sudo su
cd /Volumes/Time_Machine/.Spotlight-V100/Store-V1/
rm -r Stores; mkdir Stores
chmod +a "everyone deny list,search,add_file,add_subdirectory" Stores
Works here...
