Sometimes it is necessary to exclude folders or files from being captured during logoff
Unnecessary files and folders in Portability.7z
For example to exclude a folder or a file from "Program Group" Portability Ruleset:
Step 1) Find the name of the .7z file by editing "Portability Setting" Rule (The UID is the name of the ".7z" file)
Step 2) Open "ProgramGroup.7z" with 7zip or other application.
Step 3) Find the "Directory" or "File" that needs to be excluded
Step 4) Edit "Program Group" Portability Ruleset and add exclusions. Examples:
Option A) To Exclude Folder "Startup" (Operation: Exclude, Folder: Program Group, Path: Startup)
Option B) To Exclude File "desktop.ini" (Operation: Exclude, Folder: Program Group, Path: desktop.ini)
Option C) To Exclude "Startup\desktop.ini" (Operation: Exclude, Folder: Program Group, Path: Startup\desktop.ini)
Option D) To Exclude all 3 together:
Note: Multiple files or folders could be part of same Ruleset
Step 5) Save and download the "Default.ini" to netlogon\ProfileUnity directory.
Step 6) User must log in and logoff for the change to take place.
