Files and folders excluded from roaming

When enabled, the selected file and folder paths will not be replicated with the rest of the user's persona. You may also specify exceptions within these paths in the 'Files and folders excluded from roaming' policy.

Some usage scenarios require specific folders and files within a user's persona to only exist on the local machine. This is the case with most temporary or cached files which do not need to be replicated to the remote repository.

All folder paths should be relative to the root of the user's local profile.
