Will HoudahSpot search where spotlight won't?
0 0

HoudahSpot searches the Spotlight index. Most notable exclusions from the Spotlight index are: system files, invisible files and files nested within packages.

HoudahSpot will however find files that Spotlight does not because Spotlight and Finder skip some folders and files. E.g. much of the Library folder is hidden from view even though most of it is indexed by Spotlight.
