Hi there,

Due to the size of (for example) my Downloads folder, I keep it on a second hard drive with a simple alias in my user folder pointing to the 'original'.

When I do a Houdah search in 'user home folder' my Downloads folder is not searched.

Is there an option I am failing to see which would instruct Houdah to follow aliases?

Thanks.

Hi!

HoudahSpot is build upon the Spotlight engine. I don't think the Spotlight engine is able to follow aliases. Following aliases to other drives would furthermore require jumping mid-search to the other drive's Spotlight index.

I would suggest you create a HoudahSpot template where you manually add the Downloads folder to the list of locations to be searched.

Best,
Pierre Bernard
