[SOLVED] Searching files managed by Box Drive

Recommended Posts

Thanks, checking on Spotlight was informative. According to Box, the Spotlight and Finder searches do NOT index Box files, even ones that are set Available Offline, i.e., a copy exists on the local filesystem. Box users have requested a fix, but nothing (yet) from Box. https://community.box.com/t5/Box-Drive-Known-Issues-and/Mac-Specific-Known-Issues-for-Box-Drive/ta-p/37353

Is it possible that Alfred can use the Dox Drive indexing, in the same way that it uses the Spotlight indexing? Apparently we can query Box Drive using cmd+ctrl+alt+space. It is not practical to do several searches... for files in disk and for files in external Box Drive. I understand that this is more like a Box issue, but maybe Alfred can help on this. I would be nice.
