Easy as the title says it... I want to sync up some folders and exclude child's of that or file extensions...

Has anybody figured that out yet?

Edit: I'm talking about Windows Live Mesh 2011


If you want to exlude child folders from syncing, just add the system attribute to it. Windows Live Mesh will not sync system files. You can also do this with individual files.

Open a CMD prompt and type:

attrib +s c:\mysyncedfolder\myexcludedfolder

  • Does this work and is there any supporting documentation from Microsoft or is this just an unknown quirk? – mindless.panda Feb 7 '12 at 23:10

    @mindless.panda: Live Mesh will not sync system files, which is pretty sensible. See here: explore.live.com/windows-live-mesh-sync-file-types-ui – paradroid Feb 8 '12 at 1:44

    @paradroid Awesome, thanks. Wish they made it configurable. – mindless.panda Feb 8 '12 at 2:02
