alfred not searching my time capsule nor inside disk images

Recommended Posts

Apparently Alfred is not able to  search my time capsule, nor to see inside disk images.

As I stored quite a lot of files in this ways, it would be very useful if I could use Alfred to search them.


Btw, I noticed that the contents of my time capsule does not appear even if I search using Spotlight;

they appear only if I use the Finder's interface.

Hi Pietro,


I keep my Dropbox folder in an encrypted disk image, and both Alfred and Spotlight index it fine. However, I know it can be a bit quirky sometimes.


Here's a guide to getting Spotlight to index your disk images (specifically encrypted sparsebundles, but the concept should still work):




Hope that helps.
