I am having some Spotlight issues, and was wondering whether it’s just me or not: Certain files will not show up (the ones I've found specifically are iPhoto Library and iTunes Library) Update: It appears that strangely enough, if I duplicate those files, the duplicates do show up in Spotlight. Update II: Ha! Turns out this issue is cuz these are classified as system files. If you include those in your search, you’re good. Although I really don’t think they should be counted as system files, these are files users need to be able to get to. Especially when iPhoto Library contains ALL your pictures! Sometimes, even though results should be sorted by date opened, they're out of order. I tried to get a screen shot, but I couldn't reproduce it at the moment. I have the following saved search: but system and hidden files don't actually show up until I start typing something (anything) into the search box. Then I can delete whatever I typed and everything will be there. Do any of these things happen for anybody else? I’d hate for my SL installation to have gone wonky already (I clean installed, BTW).
