I believe the only way to add a volume to Spotlight's privacy pane is (stupidly enough) only after an volume has been completely indexed first.

If you don't wait for Spotlight to do its thing, disconnecting and reconnecting an external volume will send Spotlight off indexing again. It's super annoying and I've got a radar bug open with Apple to improve this.

So the best way to avoid this problem is to:

1. Wait for Spotlight to completely index a volume.
2. Add it to the Privacy tab.
3. Run Dave's spotlight script.

Dave, will the .Spotlight-VT100 folder be added to the items not copied over? I think if you leave this folder out of the cloning process when copying to a volume that is already marked private Spotlight will not start indexing the destination volume later on.
