So there are these two awesome tools, Dropbox, which needs no introduction, and Everything, which is a Windows file search tool. Everything doesn’t look like it’s seen any development in the last couple years, but it is still the best file finder out there (IMO). II like it so much that I’ve been sticking with it even though it hasn’t been willing to index my Dropbox folder. But, happy day, somebody posted a fix/workaround that seems to do the trick for me! It works so far, I hope it sticks.
I’m going to copy it here, just in case it ever goes away:
bq.. Did anyone try adding the Dropbox folder to the Includes section in Everything? Its a little deceiving, since its called Exclude, but you can also Include folders there!
In Everything: Tools, Options, Exclude, Add Folder, [choose Include type], [pick your Dropbox folder]…
Also add your other HDDs, otherwise you’ll only be seeing your Dropbox.
