I need to re-index my whole drive for Spotlight so I added it in the Privacy settings ('+'), then removed it as instructed ('-'), but nothing happened. Apparently this method of re-indexing has trouble with 10.5.8. What else can I do?

Mac OS X 10.5: Spotlight indexing does not complete

Symptoms

After upgrading to Mac OS X 10.5, Spotlight may not finish indexing some volumes.

Resolution

Download and install the Mac OS X 10.5.1 Update or later
Does that help?
