The ability to search for items in a specific folder was delivered in Box Drive v2.17!

The search baked into Box drive does have some value, but it can be such a **** shoot about what results will be returned for you. Especially since the returned results are limited to ?25? (saw that in a post somewhere)
This is a little more than frustrating because if we compare to a "similar" product OneDrive for Business, it DOES support searching of subdirectories and files like you would expect to see in Windows explorer, which at a minimum would allow you to constrain your search to a folder.
From what I can see OneDrive is implemented in a way that does allow the local computer's indexing engine to catalog the information stored on it. I recognize that for a company's larger amount of data this might not be entirely desirable. (i.e. we have 5 TB+ on Box, and wouldn't want everyone's local computer attempting to index all 5TB.John Nickell supported this idea ·

Thanks for the suggestion! We don’t currently plan to increase this limit given the potential performance impact this would have on page load times. We are, however, looking into alternate solutions for pagination.
