weird mdworker behavior 10.6.7


I’ve noticed recently that immediately after exporting audio mixdowns from Cubase 6 (and 6.0.2) the ‘mdworker’ process will go crazy. Often eating up 20GB of RAM and maxing out one of the cores. I know that mdworker is related to the spotlight function in Snow Leopard - but why does exporting any audio out of cubase cause it to go so crazy?

Does anyone else have this? I’ve had it on two Macs now!


Turn of spotlight on the disk you are writing too
