15.22 Temporary files are getting synchronized as actual files

Many applications such as MS Office generate some temporary files while editing a file. These files also get synchronized as actual files by iFolder. To avoid synchronization of such temporary files, you must modify the system policies of the iFolder server to exclude the temporary files from synchronization. To do this, follow the steps given below:

  1. In the Web Admin console, click the Systems tab.

  2. Specify the type of temporary files that you want to exclude in the Excluded files field and then click Add. For instance, to exclude temporary files with the extension .tmp, you must specify *.tmp in the Excluded files field.

  3. Click Save to save the policy setting.

Filters can also be set at user level to exclude temporary files. To do this, in the Users tab of the Web Admin console, select a user and then add the temporary files to the excluded file list.
