Disable Spootlight Indexing in OSX PDF
Thursday, 17 November 2011
If we want to disable Spotlight indexing process that is currently running we run from command line:

  sudo mdutil -i off "/Volumes/Macintosh HD 1"

Where '/Volumes/Macintosh HD 1' is the path to our volume that is being indexed.

This is usefull for example if you do not want to index an external hard drive.
