    This did not do the trick for me. Still more than 3 days left to index :-(

    Finally, for me the solution was go back to 10.7.4,

     

    is easy, starting from osx dvd, then reinstall my last time machine backup with 10.7.4 (you can choose from a detailed list) in my case is from 4 days back, and everything works perfect again in a few ours!

    about 3 in total for me, spotlight works fine now and time machine too!

    My emails, and personal things are safe and updated in a few minutes with icloud!

     

    Best regards!

    It seems that I found something.

     

    I cleaned caches with Lion Cache Cleaner application.

     

    A light cleaning works for me.

     

    But I ran it on safe mode.

     

    It seems to work peferly for me. Only a few minutes to reindex my local drive.

     

    I expect this will work for many.

    Thank you, I was struggling with this from this morning, your solution is working fine, I still have to wait 36 minutes for spotlight to finish it's job, hope I will be able to restore Time Machine as well.

    sorry, cleaning the caches (/Library/Caches/   ~/LibraryCaches) via the terminal (I don't have Lion Cache Cleaner) and restarting did NOT help.

    Hi, which cache(s) did you clean?

    I have chequed all the 3 boxes... I'm at home now, I had the problem on my office macpro. Strangely no problems on my home imac.

    I tried re-applying 10.7.5 via DMG (turn off Spotlight, delete Spotlight directory, re-apply 10.7.5, enable Spotlight) and indexing was estimating 6 days to complete -- I consider that a failure.

     

    Then I deleted the contents of both caches: system at /Library/Caches , user at ~/Library/Caches. I used the Finder to delete the contents and then emptied the Trash. During emptying some items would not delete so I "continued" anyway. Reboot and then delete the Trash again, to get rid of any leftovers.

     

    After 15 - 20 minutes of estimating (that's a guess), I was at 8 hours remaing to index. Then dropped to 4 hours. Now it's at 5 hours.

     

    That seems to be success to me. I'll try to repost in 5 hours to give my results.

    If spotlight seems to be working, timemachine continues to do not work properly.

    It is very slow, and sometimes, back-up looks blocked.

    I turned off spotlight, deleted its cache, then started up my time machine and things went blazingly fast.  Once it was done I turned spotlight back on.  YMMV

  • yannig Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Yes, same for me.

     

    But that's not NORMAL.

    No, because if you're already at 10.7.5, the 10.7.4 update would be a downdate and wouldn't install.

     

    We all wish it was that simple.

     

    The best solution seems to be reverting to a backup of your 10.7.4 installation if you have one. Or reinstalling Lion and updating it to 10.7.4. On that, though, I'm not sure if the currently available installer would allow you to do that; the 10.7.4 installer was Version 1.0.21 created in May while the most recent installer is Version 1.0.33, created in September.

    Darn. Apple need to hurry up and come out with an update.

    I was able to use time matching and it worked normaly once i turned the index off.

  • Todman21 Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)
