Windows 7 (64 bit) offline files - how do I exclude folders

Hello,

I would like to configure offline folders.  I want to synchronize each user's document folder. Source is Windows 7 64 bit and destination is Windows 2003 server (user's personal  network share on company file server).

While doing the file and folder synchronization, I would like to exclude particular folders (hopefully by being able to use wildcards). Can this be done and if so how?

Thanks in advance.

Mark

I read the documentation, and if I understand it correctly, exlcusino refers to files and not folers. Is it possible to exlcude folders?
mbudman, any feedback?

Hi Lee,

I have been reading the documentation (and references you pointed out). It seems that one cannot exclude subfolders for offline files. It would appear that once again Microsoft has failed to provide a full well thought out featured solution.

The Author's comment (below) correctly says that the question has not been solved, and
the question has correctly been classified as abandoned.

However, Google still lists the question as solved, thereby eroding the trust of disappointed EE subscribers.

Please correct the Google bait.
