If Spotlight does not find a file or a file's contents
Authored by: fud on Nov 10, '11 12:13:27PM

Repairing USER permissions using the Lion Recovery partition fixed all my Spotlight problems. Also seemed to fix my Finder View Options randomly not sticking. I did before and after on a few directories in the terminal, and have no idea how my USER permissions were so messed up. Now I wonder if this shouldn't be part of a major system update, or user account migration.
