Space In Folder Names Doesn't Work With .syncignore


Recommended Posts

The .SyncIgnore file seems to ignore folder names with a space.


This is my .Syncignore file

# .SyncIgnore is a UTF-8 encoded .txt file that helps you specify single files, paths and rules # for ignoring during the synchronization job. It supports "?" and "*" wildcard symbols.### OS generated files #.DS_Store.DS_Store?._*.Spotlight-V100.Trashesehthumbs.dbdesktop.iniThumbs.db# Don't Sync these folders #foofoo bar


The folder called foo doesn't sync, which is what I expected, but foo bar is still synced. Do I need to encapsulate them somehow? I've tried double and single quotes.

Any progress on this issue? I am having problems ignoring folders with spaces in the name as well. I tried the "?" suggestion, but that did not work. I finally gave up and renamed the folder in question so that it no longer has a space in the name. 


Thank you,
