Want to re-index a file or folderor even an entire volumefor Spotlight (part of Mac OS X 10.4 Tiger)? Just do this:
From the Apple menu, choose System Preferences.
Click the Privacy tab.
Drag a file, a folder, or even an entire volume (your hard drive) to the list.
Remove the item or volume you just added.
Spotlight will re-index the contents of the item you initially dragged to the list.
