Thank you for the desktop application, it was necessary and I am very satisfied, excellent job. On the other hand, it would be very useful to have the ability to exclude files/folders, either by selecting them or using a regular expression. For example, excluding folders like 'node_modules'.
I have a similar use-case. I develop Flutter apps and while I use git, I use folder sync to back up in-progress work. I don't want to sync builds, though, as they're very large, but unnecessary to back up.
I agree with this suggestion. I would even ask if it were possible to add support of ignore rule files like .gitignore and others to avoid syncing useless and cached data.
Thanks that there is now a Windows app!
This finally makes Drive usable under Windows!
Good idea, I would like to have that.
And also a good idea to add a function to ignore "My Files" and the associated "offline capability".
Without ignoring folders, Drive syncs itself!
I really don't need the offline search function. For me, it would be perfect as a pure "sync folders-2-cloud" app.
That way I would have a real archive outside my computer for things I want to keep but only need occasionally, and a backup app.
someone else already had this idea:
In the desktop application, I can only select "My Documents" for backup rather than subfolders. I don't need all folders to back up and would like to be able to select the ones I want to include in the Proton Drive sync.
Yeah, I also submitted an idea to increase the number of synced files at a time, since most of the data would be trivially small, but having a simple pattern matching exclusion would make this much more powerful.
