Index Cache on google drive

Recommended Posts

I am new to Alfred

I can't seem to index or cache my google drive.

I've given the mac all the required permissions, eg.  full drive access

but all I get is one beep when I try to index google drive.


Any advice??


I've downloaded google drive workflow as well

That’s a know issue with Google Drive not being indexable from Spotlight (whose index Alfred uses). It isn’t related to Alfred, it affects macOS in general.


But you can work around it with Alfred.

That’s what you need to do, but you have to use the Workflow to index and search the drive. Make sure to follow the guide. If you have any questions, please ask them in that thread (don’t forget the requested information).

@Elon Please don‘t post serially, it makes it hard to follow your questions.


You edit the value by double clicking it.

It looks like this is the correct file path


macOS says that’s unlikely, as per the diagnostics. Spaces matter, you have to make sure the path is exact. The links I’ve sent you explain the process. Make sure you understand it and follow it slowly. That is something you have to change yourself, there are no further details other than what has been explained and linked to.
