    Hi guys,

    A few weeks ago I did the "optibay" upgrade and added an ssd. I went with a Samsung 470 and moved my existing Seagate 500GB drive to the caddy.

    After a bit of tweaking, it seems to be running pretty well. But spotlight is pretty messed up. I had gotten in the habit of using spotlight to launch applications.....I found it to be a very quick way of doing so. But now what used to come up instantly (usually only after only a few letters) sometimes takes 15+ seconds, or doesn't show at all! (or at least I give up before it shows)

    Fixed.

    Removing Applications from the Search Results and adding it into the Privacy tab, rebooting then reversing those steps fixed it.
