Option to Sync parent/master without syncing sub folders

Hi Syncthing team and users: Firstly, this is an amazingly intuitive and robust software you have developed - Many thanks and congratulations.

I wanted to understand if there is a way to sync the master folder, but not the sub-folders or selective sub-folders within the parent folder. Please don’t ask me the reason for this requirement, just that the directory structure was created before syncing was thought about!

Thanks for your help

Best, Akshay

You can use ignore patterns.

Thanks for a quick response. I am not very tech savvy, could you please point me to the right literature to understand how to implement it? Or would it Please be possible for you to give me a little bit more information. Thanks

It’s explained in the documentation. docs.syncthing.net
