Question: Spotlight and Time Machine completely broken
I noticed a while ago that my Spotlight results were incomplete and Time Machine backups weren't finishing. I tried to reset Spotlight via System Preferences (adding and removing the disk in the privacy pane) and via terminal (mdutil -E, -i off/on, rm -r .Spotligh-V100) but without success.
The console reports thousands of the following errors:
|error||16:19:03.743202 +0100||mds||LaunchServices: store or url (null) was nil -10813, retrying|
|error||16:19:03.743247 +0100||mds||LaunchServices: Database mapping failed with result -10813, retries = 7|
If I try to make a Time Machine backup, the errors are similar:
|error||21:22:27.968375 +0100||backupd||LaunchServices: Database mapping failed with result -10813, retries = 1|
|error||21:22:36.887358 +0100||backupd||LaunchServices: store or url (null) was nil -10813, retrying|
I even did a re-install of macOS High Sierra (no clean install).
Any idea what's going on there and how to fix it? My searches are coming up short.
