Tagging files to not upload

Posted on 2011-10-09

I have files in the local copy of my website, on Dreamweaver,  that I don't want to upload to the server.  For example, I have the complete development package for the JQuery User Interface that I like having in the site folder to refer to, but I don't want to take up space on the remote server for it.  It seems like there should be some way to flag that directory to tell Dreamweaver not to upload it when you synchronize the "Entire Site."  

Thanks for any suggestions.

    Just right click the file or folder you want to exclude from sync and select Cloak from the popup menu
