  1. OK thanks very much. That works. This has been a lot of learning. I understand that Alfred is all about power and flexibility, but all of this underlines to me that the search system isn't the most intuitive - and I still don't understand why I wouldn't want to "search all file types" by default.
  2. OK - here is the diagnostic for a file which is in 'iCloud Drive', but doesn't show up in search unless "search all file types" is on. Starting Diagnostics... File: 'testmp4.mp4' Path: '/Users/paul/Library/Mobile Documents/com~apple~CloudDocs' ----------------------------------------------------------- Check file cache database... ✅ File cache integrity is ok ----------------------------------------------------------- Check if file is readable... ✅ Alfred has permissions to read this file. --------------------------------------------------
  3. OK, this is now working, I simply had to switch on "Search all file types". This is presented as a strongly discouraged option, but to me it's essential that search look at all file types. So I own up to this one. It's been worthwhile as I've learned more about how Alfred's search works.
  4. Hi Andrew Thanks for your reply. I forgot to say that ~/Library/Mobile Documents/ is also added to the search scope. All diagnostics on the file search troubleshooting are fine. The file details are: File: 'Toffee.pdf' Path: '/Users/paul/Library/Mobile Documents/com~apple~CloudDocs/Documents' This path is included in ~/Library/Mobile Documents/ so it should appear in search results?
  5. I'm a heavy user of iCloud. Why can't Alfred search see any of the files or folders that are there? I have added ~/Library/CloudStorage/iCloudDrive to the search scope. I'm using Alfred 4.1.1 with Mac OS Cataline 10.15.7.
