Alfred Search / Spotlight Indexing Issue / Sonoma 14.4.1

Recommended Posts

Hi All,

I have a problem with my files to be properly searched through Alfred. I have a google drive added to Alfred search scope. Unfortunately randomly some files are present in search and some don't. I have the same results across spotlight and Alfred. I'm attaching output from file troubleshooting tool.
