Disable Spotlight for Faster Backups

Be sure to exclude backup volumes from Spotlight

Your tip on disabling spotlight on backup drives was great.

I’m not sure my tip can help that much in general, but it can help a great deal by avoiding disk thrashing from two competing programs (backup and spotlight).
