    Is there a way to check the size of the Spotlight database on my computer? My available space on my startup disk seems to be a few hundred megs lower than it was last week, and I haven't installed or created anything that large. I'm wondering how large my Spotlight DB is. :)

    I'm not worried about it since I have about 115GB free... but I'm just obsessed with keeping my computer "perfectly optimized." ;) Crazy? Maybe...

    Mostly I'm curious to see how much space SL uses.

    Nothing huh? :confused: At least now I won't feel stupid for asking about something everyone already knows about. :p It doesn't appear there are too many people who do.:eek:
