10.4: Completely disable Spotlight
Authored by: Fil on May 13, '05 04:28:33PM

My own gripe with Spotlight is that it shows *my* files when invoked from another user account. And I saw no way of telling it to index my files for me only. (The reverse is feasible, just ask each user to configure Spotlight to ignore every other user's files - not really good).

Maybe I'm mistaken and overlloked something?

I would post your problem in the forum. On both my powerbook and my tower, I cannot find files using spotlight that are in other user's homes.

Make sure the permissions on home directories are "700" so only the owner can access or list files therein. Also make sure you haven't set "Ignore ownership on this volume" with Get Info on the volume (usually only applies to multiple-drive systems).
