Hello, 

 

I have been tasked with rolling out OneDrive for Business to the entire organization. I have so far figured out the basics of rolling out the OneDrive app with Group Policy, and how to configure "Silently move Windows known folders to OneDrive." I have, however, been unable to figure out how to exclude the Pictures folders from the sync, via GPO, with the Silent Move enabled. 

 

Is there a way to do this via GPO with OneDrive? 

 

Thank you very much in advance!

I have the same Problem, I need to exclude a folder and the template (ADMX) does not support file Exclusions
