Excluding files and folders from Delta File Transfer

You can prevent files and folders from being included in Delta File Transfer. Some types of files are excluded by default because they do not benefit from Delta File Transfer.

Files and folders that are excluded from Delta File Transfer are compressed with standard compression. However, you can prevent files and folders from being compressed by setting a global exclude for compression.

See Excluding files and folders from compression.
