X1 not searching files in my Dropbox folder?

Postby DaveB » Thu Aug 06, 2015 7:38 pm

Does anyone have any ideas as to why X1 isn't finding content in files in my Dropbox folder? They are text files and Word documents. I can search on the filename, but not the content. I have X1 set to scan "Everything (all files)" for the Dropbox folders, which is the same setting that I use for my Documents folders, and files in those folders work fine. I have version 6.7.4 of X1.

I'm wondering if maybe Dropbox has some flag set on its files that X1 doesn't like? The files are in C:\users\myusername\dropbox, so it isn't a network folder.

Thanks for any insights.

Works here.

No, I have nothing to do with X1, just a user since 2004.

I've determined that I can successfully search Dropbox content on my desktop but not my laptop. I'll see if I can figure out what is different between the two setups.
