Alfred does not find files

Recommended Posts

I have a checklist that I run every weekday morning. It's very creatively named "Weekday Morning Checklist." Since I upgraded to macOS 10.13, Alfred is intermittent in his ability to find this file. Some mornings it's no problem. Some mornings he won't find that file, but will find other files in the same directory. Some mornings he won't find any of them. I've reinstalled Alfred and rebuilt the Spotlight index, but the problem persists. Can anyone suggest a solution?

 

Thanks,

dp

@-dp- Could you please provide some more information about these files?

 

Which version of Alfred are you using, what file types they are, where they're located, whether Spotlight finds the same file when Alfred does not, and so on, so that we can help you further. 

 

Also, given you've recently upgraded to High Sierra, I would recommend rebuilding the index again, ensuring that you check the "Delete /.Spotlight-V100" when Alfred pops up this message. This will ensure the index is re-created from scratch.

 

Let me know how you get on.

 

Cheers,
Vero

Deleting V100 and rebuilding resolved the problem temporarily. A number of my files are again invisible to Alfred. Any more ideas? Thanks.

Oops. Here's the environment.

MBP 13 (2017)

macOS 10.13.1

Alfred 3.5.1 [883]

Affected files are all OmniOutliner 5.2. All are in the same directory. About half are visible to Alfred.

@-dp- can you pop an email to our info@ address (linking to this thread), and I'll create a workflow for you to try (with alternative file search, and also a workaround).

 

Cheers,

Andrew
