Hey all,

I just had some work done on my ibook G4 because my operating system wouldn't load all the way up. They had to reinstall. Now my spotlight won't find documents on my computer until I open them up... I'd rather not go through all the docs on my computer and open them up. Is there any way to change this? I'm running Mac OSX vers. 10.4.9

QUOTE Thanks

Good one Brown Study. I typically refresh my Spotlight index once a week with Onyx to avoid problems.
