Devonthink search to the rescue
I recently had trouble finding an important file in my iCloud Drive using Finder, no matter how many ways I searched for it. Frustrating right! Well, I remembered that I had recently indexed my entire iCloud Drive in Devonthink, so I tried searching for it there. Lo and behold, searching in Devonthink quickly located the file.
What makes Devonthink's search superior? Devonthink doesn't rely on the traditional search approach that Finder uses. It takes it to a whole different level by cataloging filenames as well as deeply analyzing the content and context of documents. This means that the system understands the actual content within your files, allowing for highly accurate and relevant search results.
If you've ever found yourself frustrated with the limitations of Finder's search capabilities, I encourage you to try Devonthink. It's a Mac app that can be downloaded for free from the DEVONtechnologies website. There's a free trial period of 30 days or 150 hours of runtime, whichever is later. It's also a one-time purchase and not a subscription.
