Hi,

Why do searches looking for files changed within a certain date range take so long?

Thanks

Hi!

Sorry for the delayed reply.

HoudahSpot hands searching off to the Spotlight engine. The inner workings of that engine are not documented. It's hard to say what kind of searches it has been optimized for.

What does help is narrowing down your search using additional criteria. That's what HoudahSpot helps you with. I.e. you may know the document you are searching for is a Word file. With this information you can help the Spotlight engine.

Best,
Pierre Bernard
