    Hi,

    Is there a way I cans top spotlight from indexing my second partition?

    I have created a second partition to install and test OS X Lion. Both install seem to want to index the other, creating multiple entries in my program and file searches.

    Any way to prevent this (without disabling spotlight)?

    Thanks

    System Preferences > Spotlight >> Privacy >>> Exclude what you don't want to be indexed.
