New selective sync features
How to exclude files in the root folder
A new feature of Syncdocs version 2 is the ability to ignore files that are in the top level (root) folder on Google Docs. Many times, you only want to sync certain folders on Google, to the exclusion of everything else. This option ignores files not in any folder, too.
Advanced file and folder exclusion
For advanced users, Syncdocs can be set to ignore specific file names or file types.
Note that doing this requires editing a settings xml file. You can break your Syncdocs if you destroy this settings file. If you do break the settings, you can repair Syncdocs, either by re-installing it, or by clicking on the “Default Settings” button in the Preferences.
To set which file types sync, first exit Syncdocs.
Then edit the settings file called appsettings.xml in the folder:
and edit the section “FileAndFolderNamesToIgnore“
Not syncing certain file or folder names
To ignore all files called “thumbs.db”, add thumbs.db to the list:
Files or folders (collections) in this list will be ignored.
Not syncing certain file types
Syncdocs can also ignore certain extensions:
The above will ignore all .lnk and .LNK extensions.
Extensions are case sensitive.
Restart Syncdocs when done.
