Search Within Folder is very simple and powerful. Select a specific folder in Drive and limit the search to that folder and its subfolders.


In Google Drive:

Only folders that are within your My Drive or Team Drives can be searched, if you have a folder that is shared with you, first add the folder to your My Drive.
