If I remember correctly, a very big if, all locally mounted volumes were subject to being indexed by Spotlight-even those from a different computer (as long as it was on the local net).
And so to the question….
My wife’s computer is on my local net. We share files etc., all without incident.
But I do not want my Spotlight to index her volume, ergo I have attempted to add her volume to my Spotlight/Privacy pane. But when I do, I always get this response: “This item couldn’t be added or removed because of an unknown error”.
Is there a fix for this or do I just remember all this incorrectly?
