Prevent Spotlight from indexing external hard drives
Authored by: wallybear on May 03, '10 08:12:21AM

Beware: this script assumes that you have only ONE partition on your drive (or two, with one used for BootCamp), named "Macintosh HD" (the default name used by Apple).
If you have renamed your drive or if you have, like me, multiple partitions and/or internal drives, you have to correct the script accordingly, or Spotlight will stop working on your internal drive(s).
