It seems like any files uploaded to ShareFile won't show up in a Spotlight search. I'm on MacOS High Sierra. I've double checked to make sure that ShareFile is not excluded from being searched. Has anyone been able to get this working?

Hi Amanda,

I'm a little confused by this question.  How is Spotlight accessing ShareFile to search it?

Hi Leo! I'm using the ShareFile for Mac desktop app. I'm guessing that because the files aren't stored locally on my Mac, they won't show up in a Spotlight search? I'm just wondering if there's a workaround for that - I'd like to be able to search for files on the desktop app.

Correct.  I'm not aware of a workaround for it, unfortunately.
