    Force a rebuild of your spotlight index.
    In Spotlight System prefs:
    Add every drive that should be indexed to the "Prevent Spotlight from searching..." list in the privacy pane.
    Close and reopen System prefs.
    Take those drives back off the Prevent... list.
    Wait for Spoylight to reindex them.
