    Skydrive: How do I remove a folder from synchronisation

    I am using a simple SkyDrive set-up - I'm replicating all of C:\Users\Adam\SkyDrive

    I'm also using another service called tresorit ( to backup one of the directories inside my SkyDrive folder (C:\Users\Adam\SkyDrive\Work)

    Tresorit creates a temp folder in the SkyDrive directory C:\Users\Adam\SkyDrive\Work\.tresorit which causes SkyDrive to stop all replication until it is released.

    Can I exclude this folder from SkyDrive? I'm not talking about on-line off-line I just don't want Skydrive to look at a specific file. I don't really want two local copies of my data which was one thing I though about doing...

    Any ideas?

How can I use File History to backup SkyDrive on 8.1
I know SkyDrive is explicitly excluded from File History backup in 8.1 but does anyone have an idea of how I could get the same functionality? I'm using File History to make ad-hoc system images from C:\ to E:\ and also various libraries. As SkyDrive doesn't get backed up even if in a library...
