Can't search through the OneDrive folder

Post by *italianoleone » 2019-10-02, 06:52 UTC

Hello,

If I run ALT+F7 (Find Files) in the "c:\Users\italianoleone\" folder with the "search in subdirectories" option turned on, I don't get any results from the "c:\Users\italianoleone\OneDrive\" subfolder.

I noticed that the OneDrive folder icon is displayed as a shortcut in TC although its folder properties say that it's a File Folder Type just like any other folder on my laptop.

How can I make TC search through the OneDrive subfolder? Workaround at the moment is to run two searches; first in the "c:\Users\italianoleone\" folder and the second search in the "c:\Users\italianoleone\Onedrive" folder.

Many thanks

You will have to wait for TC 9.50. Microsoft changed the behaviour of the OneDrive folder with almost every release of Windows 10, it's a real mess.
