SyncToy Exclude files RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have set up SyncToy 2.1 to copy files from one PC to another. One of my left folder pairs is C:\Users\Sluice. I want to exclude C:\Users\Sluice\OneDrive from this process so I have tried to put C:\Users\Sluice\OneDrive in the Exclude box. I have also tried C:\Users\Sluice\OneDrive\* and C:\Users\Sluice\OneDrive\*.*. On each occasion I get the error "Exception during Preview. The specified path contains characters that are not valid. Parameter name FilenameExcludes."

    What is the correct format to exclude a folder, please?
