    My spot is failing to spot data in my HD. I had to re install Quicksilver for better results. For example when i ask Spot to get a contact Phone # it wouldnt even find it !! although in Spot preferences all first 6 options are checked.

    A) why this is happening.?
    B) how do i force Spot to index my HD.?

    First off, I don't think it's necessary to repair permissions on a daily basis.

    To re-index Spotlight, go to Privacy tab in Spotlight preferences, drag in the HD volume or use the Add button. Once the volume you want re-indexed is in the list, remove it.

    There's an Apple KB article on this, but I'm too lazy to look for it.
