Option for OneDrive to Skip Backup of Select Folders, without deleting them from our computers.
Folders like ".git", "tmp", "cache" should never be backed up. They are easily regenerated and there is no logical reason to backup these folders ever. These folders need to be skipped.
Currently we have the option to not backup certain folders but they will be deleted from our computers if we do. How about allow us to keep the folder on our computers and OneDrive...simply ignores it.

It would be really nice to see this feature implemented by creating/using an ignore file like git (and other version control systems) use.
For example, a '.onedriveignore' file could contain a file name, directory name, or pattern rule of files and directories (one per line) that should not be included in the sync.
This file could be located in any sub-folder, and the rules/patterns in the ignore file should apply to the current directory and any child directories.
