file search is not working [Resolved]


Recommended Posts

File search on Alfred 4 is no longer working. If I look for a file, it finds apps and then refers me to the web. I tried stopping and restarting indexing. This destroys much of the value of the PowerPack.

@twizzard Have you looked at the File Troubleshooting guide? It will walk you step by step through using Alfred's built-in troubleshooter and how to resolve any indexing issues on your Mac.

If you still have any issues, please provide more details, e.g. the output of the File Troubleshooter for a few files you're looking for, exactly what you're typing into Alfred, etc. and we'll be happy to help you further :)

 

Cheers,
Vero

the troubleshooter did nothing. However, after stopping and restarting indexing,  and waiting I found that Spotlight was  still indexing the drive. When that finished, Alfred started finding files again.
