Searching files online only shows deleted items

New member | Level 2

Starting today, whenever I search my files online through the Dropbox website, it only shows items that were deleted. I am part of a business account and other members on the same account are able to search as usual with no issues, but the search is not working for me. Even when I search for a file that I see in a  folder, it will tell me "No results found." I have tried two different browsers, I rebooted my computer and logged out and in again and nothing has fixed it.

I am including two screengrabs so you can see a list of files, and then what happens when I search for one, "1960s California" in the example.SearchExample1.PNGEdited by moderator

Please help!

Hey there @Robbon1956,
 
Could you try a different web browser or an incognito/private window? Also, please try clearing the cache of the browser, and let me know if you see a different behaviour.
 
Also, if the above doesn’t appear to help, could you try searching without the folder filter you have applied (I believe the correct folder is selected but just out of curiosity).
 
Look forward to your reply - Thanks!
