Does anyone know how to have spotlight remember privacy settings. I have an external HD that I use for backup. I do not want spotlight wasting resources scanning it. When the drive is mounted, I add it to the privacy list to prevent the drive from being scanned. If the drive is unmounted it disappears from the spotlight privacy list. Now I know I can keep readding it to the list, but it would be nice if it could remember this on its own or is possible to create a folder action to add the drive when mounted to the privacy list or can it be done with a cronjob that checks for the mounted volume and addes it to the spotloght privacy settings?
