Hi Folks
I just restored my system drive (Macintosh HD) from a SuperDuper backup and now mdimport is reindexing the whole disk. I would have expected it to see the same dates etc and spotlight db as before and thus not think it had to reindex. What's going on here? Is this a bug or a "by design"?

It's by design, Joe. The paths to the files changed (twice), so it's reindexing.
