Ability To Exclude Certain File Types And/or Folders From Sync?

Recommended Posts

Is it possible to exclude certain file types, something similar to the .gitignore mechanism, and folders?

 

Desktop uses for Sync include sharing working folders where different software packages may create hundreds of MB of temporary files.

Thanks -- it seems the respective help site has moved here:
https://help.resilio.com/hc/en-us/articles/205458165-Ignoring-files-in-Sync-Ignore-List-

In order to understand the concept, what would be the correct syntax if my synced folder is my hard drive E:\ and the folder I don't want synced is E:\FileHistory ?

Is it correct if I add the line

E:\FileHistory

....to the file "IgnoreList" in the "sync" folder?

And do I have to add that line to the file "IgnoreList" on every synced machine, or is it sufficient to add the line on (any) one machine only?
