Exclude specific file extention from OneDrive sync

Copper Contributor

Hi all, we are going to move the Know Folders to OneDrive For Business via GPO.

We would like to exclude some kind of files (such as .pst or .mov) but we can't find any policy to do that.


There is some administrative template we need to add? There is some other way (via reg key, for ex) to do the same thing?


Thank you

@unerrore Go to the OneDrive admin center. Under the Sync category is a field for blocking specific file types.

Yes: There is a new Group Policy available: Exclude specific kinds of files from being uploaded 

you need at least OneDrive Sync Client: 20.201.1005.0006 or higher (Insider version)

But you should read here: it will not work right now:
