    Hey guys,

    Spotlight is slow and just doesn't show any damn results.
    Its impossible to find files, i always have to find them manually.

    I got 2 external drives and 3 TB fusion drive and i can't find ****.



    Im really loosing it, any other third party desktop search engine of osx? Or maybe a way to index those drives?

    Did you check your spotlight settings? Make sure those externals are not excluded from spotlight! "Privacy settings"

    Use "EasyFind" instead. Fast, easy, and it finds things that Spotlight doesn't.

    I sprung a few extra bucks for "Find Any File". I'm happy with it.
