Feature Request "Do not monitor items in this folder / sub-folder except for ones checked"

SyncBackFree is the freeware version of SyncBack. It is *not* an evaluation version of SyncBackPro/SE.

Feature Request "Do not monitor items in this folder / sub-folder except for ones checked"

I would really enjoy this feature in syncback.

I'm pretty sure we have all ran into this issue. You want to backup users windows profile, but you also need 1 folder checked inside AppData. This works great until stuff starts changing and after an upgrade syncback start checking other folders inside AppData. Some of these folders are currently in use by the OS and you start getting errors in the backup.

The option I would really love to have added is this

An option on the right-click menu, which would allow a user to right-click AppData and select "Do not monitor folders and subfolders except the folders checked"

This would allow us not to have to fuss with rules and to select specific folders and not have to worry about other folders being checked in the future.
