CR: using Exclude will exclude ALL folders with same name

17 November 2016 - 22:37

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.

How to exclude folder but include some of its subfolders

10 November 2016 - 18:50

I am syncing one large folder and want to exclude some folders but include some folders in the excluded folder. 

I am syncing between a laptop and tower so need to save space and want an easy one step sync.

Main folder is "MyDocuments" and then I do not want all of my "Software" folder sub-folders.


My approach:

Created sync for main folder "MyDocuments"

In "Filter for files/folders" step of wizard:

In "Include" shows



In "Exclude" shows



Ok so that should exclude the folder "Software" but include the folder within "Software" called "Solidworks". So I can continue to add folders to Software and know it will never sync but anything in "Solidworks" will. However this does not work because the Exclude command supersedes the Include command and nothing gets copied. So I'm stuck.


To include the "Software" folder and manually go through and exclude all the sub-folders except the "Solidworks" folder is not a good option as there are too many and you can not multi select folders so you have to create a new entry for each one. Plus when I add any new folders as I work then I would have to manually remember to go and add that into the list when I sync.  


The only solution I can think of is to just "Exclude" the "Software" folder in one sync task and then make another sync task with just the "Software\Solidworks\". Which is what I was going to do until I realized I have a whole bunch of folders I want and don't want so I would have many many tasks I would have to run all the time instead of just one with the proper settings which should be possible as this situation must be a common need.
