    I like how shared folders are at the top, it has two benefits:
    1- easy barrier of entry for people with little computer experience
    2- cannot create problems where the parent folder is deleted and the share... what happens to it
    so I'd like this limitation to remain
    It can be improved in manyways

    Thanks for the feedback! We have and added this to our backlog. Due to low customer demand for these types, they are currently not prioritized on the roadmap.

    Thank you for the feedback. We have noted this feature request and understand the value of this feature. Unfortunately, it is not on the current roadmap.

    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.

    Yes, same for PC.

    Having to use ctrl+shift+alt+B is a stretcher and functionally doesn't work within file browsers, also it is substantially slower than Listary.

    We’re not planning a ‘fast switch’ option to allow a user to easily switch between 2 different Box accounts on Box Drive while maintaining all cached data. The only option we have now is that users can ‘logout’ of their current account and sign into another account, but the caveat is that this will delete all their local cached data/MFO settings from Box Drive

    Thanks for the feedback! Users already have the ability to selectively sync (mark content for offline access) today in Box Drive. What I believe you’re asking for is a curated view of content you select to show up in Box Drive. That’s something we’re considering as we think about how to solve the content sprawl issue in Box Drive.

    This decision seems arbitrary but I'm sure there is a valid reason for this
    @Kyle, could you go more in detail about why you decided that?

    Currently delete operations do an enumeration followed by a delete command on each item. As a result, it's very very slow and when canceling it, those commands are clogging the backend buffer (just a guess) so if you do operations from the web page it returns unspecified errors.

    Instead of enumerating all items in a folder, it would be more performant to send just one command on the top item and let the backend emit a lock then enumerate for us then delete the items in the background.

    My guess is this is an ongoing improvement.
    In the meantime we'd appreciate more transparency : when you don't support a format, indicate so in the thumbnail, I suggest a red play button, something clear that saves us clicks to error page like OP mentions.

    Thank you for the suggestion!

    Providing a way to create a copy of an HD video, but at a lower quality so that it is easily downloadable is a low priority for the team.

    It’s a niche use case at the moment and there’s a workaround (use a tool to downscale the video and upload that in addition to the HD video into Box).
