Supposed I have a second drive named "Sandbox" that is to be used solely for backup purpose. Since there is often no need to access Sandbox's contents manually, I am thinking about turning off the indexing feature on the Sandbox drive with the following Terminal command:

sudo mdutil -i off /Volumes/Sandbox

Question: Does this make any sense at all? Will the system perform better (since it won't "waste" time indexing the second drive)?
