Dropbox

Post by hanguphile » Mon Sep 03, 2018 4:51 pm

Hi,
I find everything is unable to find files in my Dropbox.
I am running Windows 7 Pro X64.
I have two hard drives: C and E
Dropbox path is E:\MyDropBox\Dropbox\

If more information is required for help please let me know what.

All help and suggestions will be most gratefully received,

Thanks..

I believe dropbox uses a virtual folder.
Everything will not index virtual folders.

Indexing virtual folders is on my TODO list.

Thank you very much.
Good to know I'm not going crazy.
Incidentally, Windows search was not better.
best regards... Iain

Hi, any updates regarding supporting virtual folder indexing? I came to rely on everything for getting pretty much anywhere on my computer quickly, but now it doesn't work on Dropbox where I keep a lot of my stuff.

Oddly, this post is from 2018, but I have definitely successfully used everything to search in the dropbox folder in the recent years. Only sometimes the ability to search inside dropbox is lost. Is it due to Dropbox changing something behind the scenes that breaks it? Is there a solution with the existing dropbox?

Cheers

Hi,

sorry it seems that the database was simply corrupted / missing or something. After rebuilding the db everything works fine.
