Spotlight seems to be partially broken for me. I have been searching for a person's name that appears in dozens of searchable PDF documents and my Address Book, with no results found. I repaired permissions and restarted multiple times. I tried dragging my OS X HD into the box in the Privacy tab of Spotlight preferences, but nothing at all will show up on that list (doesn't matter if I drag onto the window, or try to add the folder/file by pressing the plus button). I even tried a terminal command I found online to delete the Spotlight database and force it to rebuild: sudo mdutil -E / No dice. I also just tried deleting the hidden .Spotlight-V100 directory, which I also came across online. Still nothing! I'm sitting here with Address Book open and see a person's entry right there, but Spotlight searching her last name comes up with nothing! Also, I'm still completely unable to get anything to show up in the Spotlight Privacy tab. Does anyone have an experience like this? What gives?!
