Missing things since moving to an external volume

Recommended Posts

Hello all,


I added an a microsd card to my macbook because I was running out of space and “aliases” a couple of folders to the sd card. Now, Spotlight can find these files but not Alfred. Even when using the “replacement file filter” workflow from Andrew Pepperrell.


The SD card is formatted as an encrypted HFS+ volume (which makes it very slow btw, if anyone was wondering, but enough for simple files.)


Any idea? I reindexed (and even removed the .spotlight-V100 file, but not luck.

Solved! I thought Alfred would follow aliases... Thanks a lot.

I take it Alfred doesn't like aliases or symlinks? That would explain why a lot of stuff I have on a flash drive doesn't show up there but in Spotlight.
