Allow subfolder exclusion without changing the default behavior of its parent folder
I use my OneDrive storage as my Documents library on multiple PCs, because this lets me sync data between apps that don't offer their own cloud storage solution. However, I need to exclude some files (like the graphics configuration files for several games, for example) as their content is specific to the machine I'm accessing them from. The issue is, if I manually exclude the directories where these files are, OneDrive treats the entire Documents folder as 'only sync manually selected folders' and any new folders I create by default are not synced. Please allow users to exclude certain files or folders without changing this behavior.
this suggestion is duplicated, see https://onedrive.uservoice.com/forums/913522-onedrive-on-windows/suggestions/18449926-reassess-the-possibility-to-ignore-or-exclude-sele
