    Since I upgraded from 10.8.4 to the 10.9 DP my Time Machine and Spotlight have been unusable and crashing cyclically.

    Has anyone else experienced this?

    I'm guessing I need to do a fresh install instead of an upgrade install....?

    Then reinstall I guess. File a bug report first.
    Make sure to run tmdiagnose and attach to your bug report. That will include diagnostic data from both spotlight and time machine.

    You should be able to restore ML from a Time Machine backup. Try that and see if it helps.

    Btw if you exclude the Mail folder from Spotlight it might work for you again.

    Thanks in advance.

    Cheers,
    Daniel
