Authored by: valexa on Jul 31, '09 08:50:44AM

the hint does not work anymore , i tested on Leopard
1 - cleaned cache and created a fresh one with sh-3.2# sudo mdutil -E /
2 - sh-3.2# du -h -d 1 /.Spotlight-V100
259M /.Spotlight-V100/Store-V1
309M /.Spotlight-V100
3 - added to _rules.plist in INCLUDE
<array>
<string>/private</string>
<string>/var</string>
<string>/usr</string>
<string>/System</string>
<string>/Library</string>
</array>
4 - rebuilt cache
5 - sh-3.2# du -h -d 1 /.Spotlight-V100
259M /.Spotlight-V100/Store-V1
308M /.Spotlight-V100

as you can see the database has the same size as before
