Question pretty much says it all...I need to exclude a specific folder (a dropbox folder) from being included in our DFS-R setup. I see how to setup an exclusion using Server 2003, but haven't been able to find an explanation of how to do this in Server 2008.

Can somebody lend a hand?

Thanks in advance.

In the DFS Management Console:

  1. Highlight Replication group on the left pane of console
  2. On right pane click Replicated Folders tab
  3. Right click the folder and choose Properties
  4. File and Subfolder filters are found there enter image description here

From MS: Exclude files or subfolders from replication

This looks like what I need, but how do I input the exact folder location? When I tried to do this using quotes and \'s it said those are invalid characters for that field so I thought I was looking at the wrong area. Also, the link you provided me is for Server 2003, but clearly the screenshot you posted is Server 2008. –  Luniz Jan 31 '11 at 18:27
    
woops, sorry, try link again. fixed for 2008. you cannot supply full paths. only the folder name (wildcard '*' is allowed though) –  Jordan W. Jan 31 '11 at 18:32
    
I suppose that'll work then, just need to make sure there aren't any other folders with the same name. Thanks for your help! –  Luniz Jan 31 '11 at 18:36
