SpotLight di Leopard, ricerca System ( Sistema ) e Library ( Libreria )

Probabilmente molti user non “attenti” non si saranno resi conto che l’indicizzazione di leopard e’ diversa da quella di Tiger.

Tanto per dirne una su tutti, ora SpotLight, non ricerca piu’ i files ne nella Libreria di Sistema, ne nella Libreria Utente ne tanto meno nel Sistema (System)

Questo probabilmente e’ stata una scelta di sicurezza, infatti nel precedente system era molto facile fare “Errori” e cancellare qualcosa che non si doveva. Quindi, secondo la mia opinione, hanno evitato direttamente di proporre quei files in caso di ricerca.

Ma per un utente diciamo attento, che ama ad esempio andare a rimuovere qualsiasi piccolo strascico di qualche applicazione rimossa, era molto utile a volte cercare nelle cartelle di sistema.

Come fare per farlo ancora??? Facile, bisogna dire a SpotLight di rifarlo ancora
