Box Folder refresh through python

I have a simple question, I am running a python script that searches for files regularly in box folders. Is there a way to refresh this box folder within my script? Thanks a lot.

Hi @yaya28

Welcome to the forum!

Not sure what you mean by refresh this folder.

Search does take a while to index new files and make them available in the search results.

Is this what you are experiencing? A new file that doesn’t show up in search?

If that is the case, then there is nothing you can do but wait.

Let us know


I think yes, I was just think, so for example if I have a box folder I can go refreshing it from these options shown in the screenshot. can I do it in a python script instead, this is my question, thanks a lot I am looking forward to hearing from you soon

Hi @yaya28 , I think you’re talking about box drive.

I don’t think we have a way to interact with box drive, that is a separate native application running on your operating system.

Tell us a bit more about your use case.

Do you need to trigger a manual synchronization between box and the local folder?
