10.4: Enable Spotlight for disk images
Authored by: tokek on May 02, '05 11:42:05PM
I was just thinking about the same thing, since I also store files on an offline volume. I do
ls -R /Volume/ext_volume > local_file; hdiutil unmount /Volumes/ext_volume
to save a copy of the the filenames and unmount. To search through my dvds, I do
grep (search-term) dvd-*.txt
However it would be nice if there was a gui for something like this, esp. Spotlight, and maybe an Automator Action instead of ls. Maybe when I upgrade to Tiger. ;-)
