Thanks for answer

 

I found the "solution".

In a folder shared to me, the indexing search is apparently not possible.

Hello @FlexBen,

Regarding Full text search, please note that it is:

  • Only available on Dropbox Business accounts, or on a Pro or Basic account that is paired with a Business account. 
  • Only available in certain languages. If you use Dropbox in a language other than English, and you do not see full-text search, then the feature is not yet available in your language.
  • Not case sensitive.
  • Includes personalized spell correction on your search queries.

To use full-text search, sign in at dropbox.com, and enter the word or file extension you’re looking for in the search bar.Drop-down search results

 

If any file or folder names match your search terms, they’ll appear in the drop-down search results. If no file names match your search terms, click Search for '[search term]' in my Dropbox from the drop-down search bar to be taken to the full-text search results.

Because you’ve searched the actual file contents—not just the name—the results shown may not look relevant at first glance. Click a file to preview it, and you’ll see that it might be just what you’re looking for.

Dopbox can search the contents of the following file types:

.doc, .docx, .docm, .ppt, .pptx, .pptm, .xls, .xlsx, .xlsm, .pdf, .rtf, .txt

You can read more about Full text search here.

Thanks!
