Change Request



Syncing between two computers.

I do not want to include a folder named "Software"


Process used:

Used Task Wizard.

On Filter for Files/Folders.

Used Add/Folder Filter and browsed to network and found target "Software" folder.

result is \Software\* displayed on "Exclude" tab.

Ran sync.


Seems good right. Nope ! I noticed a folder in a whole other location under the same directory with the same name DID NOT get synced. In this case it was a OneNote folder that happens to be called "Software" as well. So that means ALL folders named "Software" get excluded which is really not good because you think only that ONE folder chosen during the "Browse to folder" stage is excluded. Now there are probably lots of folders that are also called "Software" that have not been synced. This is a super bad bug/UI because there are probably lots of other people thinking they have excluded only what they have chosen but that is not the case.

actually you SEE what you filter, and it is \Software\*


So, if you want to filter just one special folder, please enter the exact path.


E.g.: C:\Software\* or C:\Folder\Subfolder\Software\*

Viele Gruesse / Best regards

Ok so that would have to be done under the Add/Manual Filter section and not in the Add/Folder Filter section. 

The UI still needs to be fixed because one would assume that it you go through the Add/Folder Filter and choose the target folder that it would only exclude this folder and not all with the same name.

Also tagged with one or more of these keywords: Exclude
