Why does the HoudahSpot/Finder/Spotlight comparism chart on the HoudaSpot product page state there is no "Exclude Locations" option for Spotlight? I think there is: in the privacy tab of the Spotlight preference panel in the system settings.

Is the comparism chart wrong?

Thank you.

The privacy option excludes locations from indexing. Once excluded, files located there may be found neither using Spotlight nor HoudahSpot.

What HoudahSpot adds is exclusion from search results. You may want to search for all images outside your Photo folder. Yet you will want the Photo folder to stay indexed and available for other searches.
