Stop .bak files synchronising to the cloud

Occasional Visitor

Hi there

 

We save AutoCAD files to OneDrive and this automatically creates .bak files as well as the native .dwg files but I don't want both to synchronise to OneDrive as that is a waste of bandwidth.

 

However, if I tell Onedrive not to sync .bak files, it then creates loads of errors as it still objects to the .bak files sitting in the OneDrive folder on my PC. I just want it to ignore the .bak files and only sync the .dwg files without putting red sync crosses everywhere.

Support for excluding files client-side is on the Roadmap: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-365/roadmap?filters=&searchterms=66188
