Perfect Spotlight Behaviour, is it possible?
 
Hello all,

Here's what I thought would be the perfect spotlight behaviour for backing up.

1. Indexing is disabled after backup (AFAIU this is already being done according to http://www.shirt-pocket.com/forums/showthread.php?t=361)
2. After successful recovery the indexing is restored (is this the case or not?)

I'm wondering about 2 :confused:

Keep indexing ON, but add the drive into the Privacy tab of the spotlight preference pane. We'll preserve and restore that state.

Which drive?
 
Dave -- Which drive... the source or the target? Can you explain why?
Thank you!

The target, because that's the one you don't want indexed. And -- why? Well, "Privacy" is what Spotlight uses for that exact purpose... maybe I don't understand your question.
