Skip scanning excluded folders on Onedrive

Post by prameshp »


I currently have syncback pro set up to backup my documents from onedrive every night and have chosen to exclude my music folder however i've noticed that every time the profile runs it still scans the entire music folder which takes quite long. I have also applied the filter to not copy the music folder but it still scans it every time.

Is there a way of telling syncback to completely ignore the music folder to reduce the scanning time.
