Can't index

in Genius Bar edited January 2014
i was indexing my HD the other night, then i stopped it at like 42000 files, then i tried to index it again, and it started then stopped, and wouldn't index it. i repaired permisisions, restarted, and i still can't index it. why not?

    What happens if you index smaller amounts - does it freeze?

    Sheer volume might be causing it to choke. I have heard of file transfers in the finder becoming clogged and stopping. Problem was solved by using the terminal to do this.

    Do you know if there is a terminal command for indexing???

    I personally never index as it seems to take fooorrreeeevvvvaaaaa....
