Windows Search index files in Google Drive?

4 posts in this topic

When I try to search my Gdrive folder in Windows 8.1 it never finds any files. Any idea what I can do? It is listed in the Index options to be indexed.

Do you have it mounted as a regular drive? The indexing service doesn't scan network locations.

Find this solution on Google groups:

 

 

Open folder, select 'View', select the drop down arrow under 'Option', then select 'Change folder and search options', >'Search' and select ' 'Don't use the index when searching in file folders for system files' and 'Apply'.
