[SOLVED] Limiting searches and ignoring external drives

Recommended Posts

To begin with - I want to limit my searches to my Documents folder and my iCloud Drive.

I have a couple external back-up drives and do not want those files displayed.

 

Where do I start ?

 

Thanks

Edit your Search Scope (Alfred Preferences → Features → Default Results → Search Scope) to only include the directories you want Alfred to show.

If that’s all you want, go to System Preferences → Spotlight → Privacy, and add your drives there. This works because Alfred uses Spotlight’s database to show your files.
