I understand that Spotlight uses ONE system-wide index--and that index (well, set of indices) tracks all the stuff belonging to ALL users. But it obeys permissions and simply doesn't show you other people's stuff in the results. Anyone know how this all works with File Vault? If your data is encrypted, then you don't want an unencrypted index TO that data, including your files' text contents! Spotlight could use a separate index files, stored within your encrypted account--but I'm guessing it doesn't, because if it was built that way then it would just have separate indices for ALL users, and supposedly it does not. So does Spotlight work with File Vault or not? And does it compromise your data protection if so? With Tiger now encrypting virtual memory, it seems like Apple must have solved this also in some way. Just wondering.
