Highlight index not accessible to Alfred or Raycast


M1 Professional MacBook Professional working MacOS Ventura 13.4

Neither Alfred nor Raycast’s file search extension present any outcomes once I seek for recordsdata that I do know exist (certainly, they present no recordsdata in any respect). The identical searches in Highlight work high-quality, so it looks like the Highlight index is okay; it simply looks like Alfred and Raycast cannot entry the Highlight index.


  • re-indexing Highlight
  • eradicating Alfred and Raycast from Accessibility and Full Disk Entry permissions, then re-adding them

This can be a comparatively new behaviour. I am unable to pinpoint precisely when it began, but it surely positively wasn’t an issue just a few weeks in the past. Each Alfred and Raycast file searches work high-quality on my 2020 iMac 27″, additionally working 13.4.

Any concepts?
