Yes, in fact that works just fine – with this the search feature of File Manager works just fine. That, along with using the right click “open with” feature to open a .cloudf file in a program, does everything I want!
If I could make an observation about Odrive, it seems like a very powerful program that has lots of useful capabilities. But it took me a long time to figure out how to make it do the specific things I wanted, and I did read the manual pretty carefully, I thought.
It might be useful to put together some specific examples of how people might want to use it and then walk through exactly how you would do that.
For example, in my case I want it for backing up my main desktop computer and also for using it as a purely cloud drive for my laptop which has too little memory for all the files to be stored locally.
Somebody else might want it more just for cloud backup.
But in any case, some examples of how to implement the program for such specific cases could be very helpful for new users.
