  1. Hi, I'd like to confirm that after all the steps in the previous thread. I still wasn't able to fix the search function, and needed to switch to Spotlight. My conclusion previously is that there's an issue with the index (since HoudahSpot also behaves weirdly), but the issue comes from nowhere (I wasn't doing major system updates) and cannot be fixed by rebuilding it.
  2. Thanks for the suggestion. I tried using the default "Dynamic File Search" and "File filter from keyword and reveal" workflows. When the folder is specified the results remain the same - the newly added file can be found but the old files cannot. There are also cases that a folder cannot be found by Alfred (again, it can be found by Spotlight), but a newly added file in it can be found.
  3. Yes, the newly added files (or files that I recently opened) immediately show up in Alfred's search results. In this case, the old unsearchable files in the very folder remain unsearchable. Yes, I always used the file search mode.
  4. Hi, I am using Alfred 4.3.3 on macOS Big Sur 11.2.3 My Alfred cannot find some files recently, previously it worked perfectly. Those files are inside a folder that is synced by Dropbox or OneDrive. All the files are stored locally, spotlight can find and open them without troubles. There is more than 800 subfolders in that folder. Other folders in the cloud drive directory can be searched by Alfred. I followed the official troubleshooting process, the diagnostic tool shows no problems with a file that cannot be found by Alfred (log attached below). I tried to rebuild the metadata several times (with full disk access), in the middle of the rebuilding process, Alfred can find some files, shortly after the rebuilding ended, Alfred cannot find those files again. If you open a file recently, Alfred can find it. mdfind can find them. Please let me know if anyone has any insight. Thanks! Starting Diagnostics...
