    1. Hope it fixes my current issue: Spotlight hasn’t worked since the first update (13.0.1). Have tried every fix I can find online, but nothing seems to work. Can’t tell you what a pain it is trying to sift through terabytes of data to find files. AARGH!

      1. I swear I already responded to this but I don’t see it. Here it is again.
        Try disabling Spotlight through the command line and reenabling it. This rebuilds everything. I did this recently and, so far, it looks like it might be working. Only time will tell. Here is a link describing the process (modified so it doesn’t get blocked):

        1. Dude – Thanks, but I tried that process multiple times, with no success. May try again (what do I have to lose but more time, right?).

          Using the command line, I CAN get the system to start to create a Spotlight index, but the process quits in about 45-60 seconds, and the index is empty (returns no results). Interestingly, if I search for something in that first minute, I will see partial results, but after a few more seconds, nada.

          I’ve tried booting from internal and external drives, even wiping a drive and creating a fresh install (with 13.1). No luck. There’s obviously some conflict, but I’m not using any unusual software… nothing that should interfere with Spotlight. My search for a solve continues…

  1. Worst version of Mac OS in some time. I disklike the ‘new’ System Preferences intensely. Stability doesn’t seem to be great either. It would be great if they stopped this yearly release nonsense and just polish what’s already there.

  2. Since doing the update I can’t access my laptop over my network from other Macs. Each Mac I attempt from gets the beachball until I shut down the laptop. Then all the other Macs are fine. Can’t even force quit the other Macs until laptop is off. Hope someone is working on fixing this one.
