[Solved] Ignore All .git Directories


Recommended Posts

Apparently I can't follow instructions in http://help.getsync.com/customer/portal/articles/1910522-ignoring-files-in-sync-ignore-list-?b_id=3895 because I can't make this work.

 

I have a folder called ".git" that I do not want Sync to monitor.

 

I tried adding the following lines to ...\.sync\IgnoreList but it still keeps syncing the ".git" folder and everything in it.

 

# Git generated files #

.git

.git\*
*\.git

 

Can someone point out what i'm doing wrong? Thanks!

Also, just to add to cipherplain's answer - when making changes to .sync/IgnoreList, make sure you restart Sync for the changes to take effect.

 

I would also remove that share and re-add it with the new SyncIgnore file already in place.

I kept having issues with files still syncing even after I stopped sync and restarted it after my changes to that file.

Thanks everyone! The problem seems to have been that I did not restart Sync after modifying IgnoreList

 

Now I see that is mentioned in the last sentence on the help document.
