10.4: Some Spotlight tips and tricks
Authored by: neodidymos on May 07, '05 11:33:21AM

Any thoughts on how to EXCLUDE "Trash" from being searched/indexed? I added Trash folder to the "Privacy" tab (had to drag it in and it added /Users/username/.Trash. I saved the preferences and closed it.

Opened it back up and it was removed. Looks like it doesnt like ".Trash" hidden folder being included in the privacy option.

I think it should be unindexed by default, given that every file/folder starting with a "." gets left unindexed.
