As a newbie, this may be basic, but how do I hide specific locations from a search?

I use Google drive as a backup location and don't want it showing up in file searches.

Many thanks,

Probably best to drag your backup folder into Spotlight's Privacy pane in System Preferences.


That stops Spotlight indexing the folder at all, so your backup files won't show up in Spotlight or Alfred.
