To increase search speed when users rerun a previous search, FileCloud caches search results by default. However, if files or folders are modified or moved, search results are not up to date. You can override caching of results in the Advanced Search dialog box.
- In the Search bar, click the down arrow.
The Advanced Search dialog box opens.
- Uncheck the Use Cache Results checkbox.
In future searches, Use Cache Results keeps the setting you entered unless you change it.
