    Hello on and all.

    Now I have recently replaced my SR 2.2 MBP's HDD it was a 120gb now its a 320gb Seagate. I CarbonCopyCloned the harddrive onto the new one and put it in my MBP.

    Now everything works but the main problem is that when in finder and clicking a folder in column view it takes absolutely ages for the contents of that folder to be visible.
    Before I would just click on a folder and walla the contents would be viewable.

    This is the same when deleting files and emptying trash it takes a lot longer.

    I have done permissions repair to see if that would help.


    Anyone have any ideas. Cheers

    Haha so I figured it out and all is good.

    Basically I logged in as the root user and found that this problem wasnt there for that user. This made me realise it was a problem with my user account after hours of transferring files between users. I narrowed the problem down to a corrupt com.apple.spotlight.plist file in /users/library/preferences/

    If you have this problem try trashing that file to see if it cures the problem.

    Good stuff.
