10.4: Finder searches fail for Spotlight-excluded drives
Authored by: gevitek on Jun 20, '05 06:47:54AM

Well why don't you just turn off indexing for the volume with

sudo mdutil -i off /Volumes/volume_name

Then the volume isn't indexed, but old-style name search works just fine in the Finder. When Spotlight says "Privacy" it really means privacy, not just turning off indexing.
