I wish to sync my desktops between pc's - how do I prevent program shortcuts being synced across devices?

Recommended Posts

As per the title I wish to sync user folders between pc's

I have checked the ignorelist which filters desktop.ini, thumbs.db etc.

If I want to prevent program shortcuts being synced, what do I need to add to the ignorelist to prevent these being synced across devices?

Regards

vi10, you can add this string into IgnoreList:

*.lnk

It's better to do that on all peers, because if you ignore it only on one peer and you have other two peers they will synchronize shortcuts with each other, but the peer where you ignored it won't synchronize shortcuts.

Yes, you need to do that on all peers. And if you have several folder, you need to to add it for each folder (because IgnoreList is different for each folder).
