10.4: Finder searches fail for Spotlight-excluded drives
Authored by: dreamer-of-rules on Jun 19, '05 09:35:56PM

I think that conceptually, Finder is doing the right thing. You marked the drive as Private, so that it would not be included in searches. The 'correct' fix would be to allow for "Do not index external drives for Spotlight" and Finder should revert back to its old behaviour for non-Spotlight drives.

To be perfectly clear, it's not a "privacy" issue, it's a "performance" issue.
