    This is a great idea! Unfortunately we aren’t able to prioritize this ask at this time due to other competing priorities.

    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.

    Currently: Windows search tools does not yield files from one's Box Drive. Users must use Box Drive's search tool.

    Desired: Utilize Windows search tools to display content from Box Drive.

    We understand the request, but unfortunately this is not on the near-term roadmap. We are currently prioritizing automatically locking/unlocking files on Box Drive for Office files on Windows. We will revisit this feature in the future.

    Current: Users must manually lock and/or unlock a file.

    Desired: Users are prompted to lock a file when attempting to edit a file. If the user opts to lock a file while editing, the file will automatically unlock when the user finishes making edits.

    Nice to Have: A checkbox asking the user if they would like to see the dialog every time they edit a file. Alternatively, there could also exist a setting in the user profile asking the user if they would like to see the dialog.
