Exclusions policy settings

Jul 25, 2014

The Exclusions section contains policy settings for configuring which files and directories in a users profile are excluded from the synchronization process.

Exclusion list - directories

This setting specifies a list of folders in the user profile that are ignored during synchronization.

Specify folder names as paths relative to the user profile (%USERPROFILE%).

By default, this setting is disabled and all folders in the user profile are synchronized.

Example: Desktop ignores the Desktop folder in the user profile

If this setting is not configured here, the value from the .ini file is used.

If this setting is not configured here or in the .ini file, all folders in the user profile are synchronized.

Exclusion list - files

This setting specifies a list of files in the user profile that are ignored during synchronization.

By default, this setting is disabled and all files in the user profile are synchronized.

Specify file names as paths relative to the user profile (%USERPROFILE%). Note that wildcards are allowed and are applied recursively.

Example: Desktop\Desktop.ini ignores the file Desktop.ini in the Desktop folder

If this setting is not configured here, the value from the .ini file is used.

If this setting is not configured here or in the .ini file, all files in the user profile are synchronized.
