Hi, I am using osx 10.11.1

I am trying to limit search results to see only folders in Dropbox, but I am also getting all the subfolders, which is really annoying. I am able to sort by path, but trying to filter the results doesn't seem to work to limit it to only get the top level folders. (i don't want the 2nd or 3rd etc level folders).

Is there a way to limit this oe exclude the subfolders / directories?

Searches always include subfolders.

You could set up a search where you manually add each subfolder as "exclude location". Then save that search as a template for later use. You would  have to update the template whenever you add a subfolder to your Dropbox.
