Content Indexing the Cloud Files (Sharepoint)

Post by nesedenyana » Mon Sep 19, 2022 10:41 am

Hi,
I have lots of files which are only stored as cloud files in Onedrive. So, when I start content indexing, it starts downloading everything from Onedrive, which is not ideal.
So, there should be a check to "ignore cloud files that are not downloaded". Is it doable? Because, most people -especially in business- uses this cloud files.

I will look into only indexing files without the FILE_ATTRIBUTE_RECALL_ON_DATA_ACCESS attribute.

For now, you may want to exclude your one drive folder from your indexed content.

Yes, that should be it!

For me, almost everything is mix of on-demand and downloaded files, so I cannot keep going, but if we have the change, that should work seamlessly. I am not sure how it would work for file that change the behaviour. As you know, you can download some files, and later on, you can "free up space", so the file will change the behaviour, but you will have the content index.

Would it be possible to have it on 1320 to test?

I will look into adding this in the next alpha.

There might be a better solution that I am exploring..

Do these files have the "NOT_CONTENT_INDEXED" attribute set?
-If you right click one of these files and click Properties, under the General tab, click Advanced, is "Allow this file to have contents indexed in addition to file properties" checked?
