Offline Files (original, not preview) Location on Android

    Hi there, 

    Welcome to the Box Community!

    This is expected. Offline files are inside the Box app's private internal storage so users should not be able to access these files with any other apps beside the Box app itself. 

    Thanks for your question and let us know how else we can help!

    How can I use the search in Box to find these files when I'm offline? I've made a file available for offline but when I'm offline the Box search doesn't work and I can't find then in an Android file manager. Is there a way around this, apart from by searching through my folder structure?
