Hopefully someone has seen this before. As of late, my MBP has been bogged down by this mds process. It gives me the 'beach ball effect'. Google points me towards Spotlight, but no straightforward fixes. I'd rather not reinstall SL due to time constraints. If I quit the mds process, it restarts itself and slow builds to around 2GB of real memory in a matter of minutes. Surely this can be fixed, right? Thanks guys!! Edit: I hear my HDD constantly working when the process is like it is in the screenies, like it's indexing forever or something. Edit2: Also I don't have a Time Machine drive set up if that helps.
