  1. This is a tool I write called Tiger Tamer to set hidden preferences. In the spotlight tab there is an Edit Filter Rules for… pull down menu to edit the rules for specific volumes. You can use this to both include and exclude folders on specific volumes. I use it, for instance, to add /usr/include and /System/Library/Frameworks and to exclude /Developer/SDKs so that I can search real headers.
