I think the title says it all, but to elaborate — if I re-index the files on my harddrive, I was wondering if the indexing algorithm index my files more efficiently, perhaps due to the added freedom of not having to assimilate into an existing file lookup table.


I have bagillions of science monographs in my file system, and spotlight now takes tens of seconds to find stuff.


Sorry if the question is obvious. Operating and file systems are not my forté.
