    Try command+r with the file name selected. That should open the folder containing the file.

    Hi,

    drag the file into a Terminal window : this will return its full path.

    Have you tried restarting your computer since you manually removed the kodi files?

    Hi,

    this is a Spotlight problem again.

    Do an index rebuild again.

    Wait for the process to complete, it can take a while.

    How did you reindex Spotlight? It sounds like you may have dragged the drive into this Privacy tab then not dragged it back out after, which would turn Spotlight off altogether. You need to remove the drive from that pane after entering it to force a reindex.
