Azure FIle Sync - exclude a folder? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi Guru's

    Is it possible to exclude a specific folder from being sync'ed by ASF where the volume (i.e. E:\) has been selected as the 'local path' in the server endpoint properties.

  • NO that's option is not supported  yet.  The file and folder exclusion list for Azure File Sync is hard coded and cannot be modified. The default exclusion list is documented in the planning guide.

    If you mount the file share by using SMB, you don't have folder-level control over permissions. However, if you create a shared access signature by using the REST API or client libraries, you can specify read-only or write-only permissions on folders within the share.

    Hope this helps!
