    Hello all,

    I am considering moving everything over from Google Drive, email etc... But I can not determine whether OneDrive supports searching within files. That is full text search. I have uploaded a text file via the online interface, (a Markdown file) and it is not searched within, however a text file I created with the online editor was. Can you advise if this is a setting or something I am doing wrong? Or is it just not possible?

    Thanks!

    Looking at your question I was curious as well, so I tried to reproduce it, and found that I could quickly get results by using the 'Search All' function in One Drive. I went to my documents, but didn't open them and just plugged in random search terms to see what would come up. All worked fine, and searches went through the files as well as the folders.

    @Azensun What sort of files were they that you were search through/receiving results from, any sort? Could you try creating text files with a `.md` extension from your desktop and uploading them?
