10.4: Find one possible source of Spotlight issues
Authored by: lithite on Apr 24, '09 04:45:26AM
You can save yourself considerable effort looking through lines and therefore scan much more by piping to grep:
find / -type f -print | grep -B1 -v '^/'
This will list all files on the disk, and print out lines that don't begin with / (so lines following a return in a filename). It will also print out the line before it so you can see where it is.

This may be an intensive process, so it may be wiser to scan a smaller subset such as:
find /Applications/ -type f -print | grep -B1 -v '^/'
