    not planned  ·  Kyle Williams responded

    We are currently not planning to implement this feature and will continue to prevent all Box Drive results from appearing in Explorer/Finder searches.

    Box Drive does not download the all of the metadata (File name, folder structure, etc.) of your Box content. Instead, it is downloaded on demand and then evicted when it is no longer relevant. This eviction process is not visible to users and it is not easily predictable. This would cause the search results in Explorer/Finder to be inconsistent for users – sometimes they would find a file and other times they may not if the metadata and file were evicted.

    We have chosen not to download all of the metadata (and then keep it up to date with changes) as this can result in a large performance, storage and bandwidth tax which is not scalable – especially in environments where users interface with millions of files/folders.

    Thanks for the suggestion! We are looking at how to improve content sprawl on Drive. We will be considering Collections as a possible path (among other options), but don’t have a change planned in the near-term.

    Please Please Please do this. We did indeed follow instructions to "plan our structure carefully". The end result is that many of our staff have 40 or more folders where their content might be located. Those folders may or may not be named in a way that is meaningful to each employee, and no one can tell another employee where a particular file or folder might be located, because everyone sees the structure differently. Waterfall is a nightmare.
