How to exclude folders from beeing searched?

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I have a backup folder with BT Sync that is selectivly synced to the MacBook I'm running Alfred on. Now everytime I look for Application X in Alfred it shows me the local one and the one in my BTSync backup folder that... does not work, because it's only a link. How can I exclude a folder?

Spotlight Settings → Privacy and there add your Backup folder. After that it shouldn't appear in Alfred anymore. If it still does then delete it → wait a moment and redo it, else you gotta have to reindex.

 

Hope this helps :)
