I hate that spotlight indexes external drives. I hate waiting for hours for it to create hidden folders of catalogs that are just waisting space. I hate that it does it to my friends drives that I will only use once and that they will take home with a strange index folder full of rubbish.
So I disable external drive spotlight indexing but now HOW AM I GOING TO SEARCH IN THOSE VOLUMES?
Well, there are Unix ways of doing the search, but I’m don’t spend 100% of my time on a Terminal window.
ENTER EasyFind from the DEVONThink guys.
A NO INDEX search software for MAC that acts perfectly to search files, folders, content in files, etc… A life saver on the toolbox of any Mac Computer.
No more spotlight rubbish please!
