    Hi all..

    After excluding a folder in Spotligh Preferences >> Privacy tab, it appears it doesn't work (or i'm not doing it right), as after i add folders, then search via spotlight, I still get these files/folders appearing in spotlight results, even though the folder(s).

    I'm trying to exclude Downloads folders ..... Maybe you can't exclude default Apple folders ?

    In any case, I looked into this, and came up with this :

    Would this be the cause, the reason why Spotlight cannot prevent this is because its already been indexed ?

    Any solutions here ?
