From the Apple menu, choose System Preferences.

1) Click Spotlight.

2) Click the Privacy tab.

3) Drag a folder or even an entire volume (your hard drive) to the list.

4) Remove the item or volume you just added.

5) Spotlight will re-index the contents of the item you initially dragged to the list.




I followed the above instructions but Spotlight will NOT search any files on my Go Flex External Drive. When I double click the Go Flex drive and put a query into Spotlight it always flips back to ONLY access files on This Mac


Same with the Spotlight Icon in the upper right corner on top.


I have tried ejecting the Go Flex and inserting it into another USB but still no luck


Any advice?

iMac, Mac OS X (10.7.2)
