Hi,

 

About to rollout ODFB to company and want to exclude backing up Desktop & Documents.  I know you can do this manually via settings but can you do this via group policy or somewhere else?

 

Thanks

@SaintsDT You cant exclude desktop & documents from Know folder  Move centrally using policies. You can create a power shell script.
