Go to System Preferences, Spotlight and then the "Privacy" Tab.

Add the External Hard Drive to the Privacy Tab which will prevent it from being Indexed by Spotlight.
Hi David H,
Thanks for answering.
I didn't explain well in my original post about the privacy setting:
I had tried putting the drive as private in sys pref, but here's the snag-
I have to connect the drive for System Preferences to see it to add it to the list. Once connected, I have to let it index before I can put it in the privacy list. OK- No big deal.
Next time I connect it, the privacy setting is ignored, and it re-indexes all three volumes.
