  • Hi Lakshmanan,

    Thanks for your quick response.

    I think the link you sent me is to exclude, I need to include folders, and that too folders which are on the user's local machine (and not the folders which are a part of the doc library in sharepoint).

    Regards

  • Hi Ajay,

    With only SharePoint online, it is not supported to crawl and search the local files.

    As a workaround, you can configure hybrid search with SharePoint on-premise, then the hybrid search service application can crawl local files and you can search the files in SharePoint online.

    About hybrid search:
