Rebuild Spotlight Index By SW has been discontinued
Rebuild Spotlight Index By SW runs a command-line argument that forces Mac OS X 10.4 to rebuild the Spotlight index on your Mac.

Great for use with ARD/NetBoot!

***THERE IS NO APPLICATION!*** (the installer IS the program!) Each time you "install" the package, there are acompanying scripts which run and force Mac OS X 10.4 to "rebuild" Spotlight's "index".

What's New

Version 2.7:
  • More logging for system events
  • Log files now placed in separate directory (/Library/Logs/SISUWORKS/RebuildSpotlightBySW.log)
  • Reduced dependency on executing commands as root, due to the fact that root authentication is required anyways
  • Forced Software to only run on Root volume (currently booted volume) to clear up some confusion


Mac OS X 10.4 or later
