Google Drive for Desktop v50: manual reindexing

- Posted in reference workflow - 2 comments

With the new Google Drive for desktop update, Alfred stopped working. I rely heavily on Alfred to find files, to move to deep folders quickly etc.

For reference here is the version I am using:

I think reason it doesn’t work is because Spotlight doesn’t index the drives anymore. You can solve this by running:

sudo mdutil -i on /Volumes/GoogleDrive*

This should output something like:

/System/Volumes/Data/Volumes/GoogleDrive:
	Indexing enabled. 

Unfortunately you have to do this every time you reboot your computer. Yeah, I know :/
