I have a group of people who are using Google Drive to store data. They all have shared folders on this drive for which they access locally on their desktops. I checked the drive options locally and they seem to have all the permissions. Does anyone know of any issues with trying to search for files via the local machine that are on the Google Drive? When I try to search in the folders it brings back no results when you can actually see the files and folders listed there.
