    Searching locally synced files is very valuable as you can limit the search context to the desired portion of the tree structure. Also, once you find the desired file it reinforces their location.
    The Box Drive search is much less valuable as the search context is way to broad, searching Box files I have zero interest in.

    Our organization desperately needs this feature! Our executives regularly travel to Asia where internet is spotty at best. We have unfortunately reverted back to Box Sync for them until this feature becomes available.
