Spotless - 1.0.2 - Enable/disable Spotlight auto-indexing

Spotless is a simple utility designed to disable and enable Spotlight’s auto indexing with the click of a button.

The hostconfig file is read during the boot process to determine which services will be running once the computer has finished booting. Spotless changes the SPOTLIGHT entry in the hostconfig file from -YES- to -NO- or from -NO- to -YES-. A restart will be required to apply the change.

Please note that Spotlight searching will not be available until Spotlight indexing is enabled. This includes the “find” functionality of the Finder. The purpose of this tool is to disable Spolight indexing for a limited time while functions that Spotlight interferes with are performed – such as creating bootable backups, or performance issues related to new Mac OS X installations / upgrades.

  • CAN NOT DOWNLOAD: Some probably encounter the following error: This site can’t be reached ...sundryfiles.com’s server IP address could not be found. DNS_PROBE_FINISHED_NXDOMAIN. In this case, please use Google DNS and you will get rid of trouble.
  • If downloaded file can not be extracted (file corrupted...), please make sure you have downloaded the file completely and don't use Winzip, it sucks! We would recommend using The Unarchiver.
  • By reason, the App does not work and can not be opened. Mostly, just Disable the Gatekeeper, and you get rid of troubles.
