Had similiar issue with Spotlight, not sure if com.apple.mediaanalysisd caused it though. Anyway, I got it working again with the following:One thing that bothers me from using launchctl unload -w /System/Library/LaunchAgents/com.apple.mediaanalysisd.plist is that Spotlight stops working. It is no longer able to search for Apps on the drive. I use that quite a bit to launch apps.
sudo mdutil -i off / sudo rm -rf /.Spotlight* sudo rm -rf /.metadata_never_index sudo mdutil -i on / sudo mdutil -E /
Maybe I was wrong and it worked to remove the mediaanalysisd file. It was stuck only 1 time right after restart and since then never again. Let´s see if it stays like this. What is the mediaanalysisd file for ?
