    I have this in my finder window If I delete the mds-crash-state, it shows up again the next day? One of the times I deleted it, my system crashed? What the heck is it?

    MDS-crash-state

    I've been finding that an MDS-crash-state file mysteriously appears at the top level of the Finder, too, and wondered what it was. I don't remember Spotlight malfunctioning, however, but perhaps some of the problems aren't obvious.

    I get the file being created after most restarts. I wonder if I should worry/
