    The first time i install SL it would constantly index through spotlight, so i reinstalled and everything was fine for a few day s but now it occasionally gets in a fit where it keeps reading my hdd for no reason. Spotlight isnt indexing, and the apps i have open are Firefox, Thunderbird, and iMovie. Activity monitor shows that it has been reading away for a while, but doesnt tell me what app is accessing the disk and why.
    Anyone else with this problem?

    I've had the same thing yestrday.

    I had to stop the indexer , remove the spotlight file on my main disk and restart the indexer.

    I believe I have a corrupted spotlight index
