    Hi there, 

    Welcome to the Box Community!

    Box Content search feature is currently only available to Business and higher plans as found HERE.

    • "Indexed Text per Document: The Box search index stores up to 10,000 bytes (~10,000 characters in English) per document for accounts from Business level and above. This amount can vary from document to document because of language, Box’s indexing method, and document type."

    Personal users are not able to use this feature so if content search is not coming up for you, it could be due to your type of account.

    Regards,

    Can you reactivate Box Sync?  While not perfect, when I moved folders that I use (search) most often to there, I was able to use the file content search capability of my operating system.

    Wouldn't Box Sync work the same as using Box Drive, with some folders marked to sync locally (verses those left in the cloud)?
