I added my folder (which is on the network). I use the search and nothing.

Ex: I go to a folder where there are lots of .avi files and search .avi and get 0 result.

Been waiting for an hour still nothing.


Any idea?

    Spotlight doesn't index network drives.

    Seriously??? This is seriously limiting the spotlight usuage. I mean nowdays most people have their big backups on external drive, network.

    Any how thanks for letting me know this.


    By each thing i learn about Apple's application/OS/iOS the more i understand why people dont like Apple to be honest. Its like they give you a Ferrari but tell you you are not allowed to go over 50km/h, and you are not allowed to go outside of town, well you understand my point

    Most of the limitations are just plain bizzare to be honest.
