Re-enabling spotlight

I've used SuperDuper! to clone my internal drive to an external drive and I used the disable spotlight script. I have since restored my internal drive from the external drive using SuperDuper! with the disable spotlight script. How do I re-enable spotlight on my internal drive? Thanks for your help.

Send a message via AIM to dnanian

Run the following command in Terminal (copy/paste):

sudo mdutil -E -i on /

Press Return at the end if you must, and enter your password when prompted (it won't echo), pressing Return at the end of that, too.

Soon after, Spotlight should commence indexing the drive.

Hope that helps!

(Note -- this assume that you're *booted from* the drive you wish to restart indexing on.)
