Cannot exclude Dropbox from search

I have added my Dropbox folder to the list of folders to exclude from searches (using the Ctrl-Ctrl shortcut - it’s the only entry in my exclude list, by the way), deleted my history, refreshed the index, and my Dropbox folders still show up first on any search. Because I use Dropbox for encrypted backup of my real working folders, the Dropbox version is never the one I want - so how do I exclude it?


  1. Check if you’ve added Dropbox to Favorites accidentally.
  2. Please upload a screenshot of your exclusion settings.
