Exclusions

I have been working with filr for a couple weeks now. Have been trying to
find a way to do exclusions for files and folder types. This is a all mac
desktop environment that is currently using ifolder. The change with filer
is that it syncs everything in their home directory. Ifolder allows
exclusion of file types where filr does not seem to allow this. Am I missing
something or is there currently not a way around this?

Thanks
Rick

    Filr currently does not have a way to filter certain file types from
    syncing, though I know I've seen this enhancement request. Now users
    can choose to sync only specific folders in their home directory
    instead of the entire home directory so that could be a bit of a
    workaround but that's about all that's currently available.

    Thanks much Joe. I guess in the end that was a good solution. Just never
    dawned on me. Still would like to be able to say not to sync files by type
    if possible.
