Add the option to exclude file types from being backed up instead of blocking
We need the ability to exclude files from being synced. Blocking them generates errors and warnings for the end users which freak them out. We either need the ability to silently block file types or just exclude them from syncing. We have this issue specifically with Microsoft Teams generating shortcuts that then get synchronised everywhere else.
As of today, OneDrive is reporting that Thumbs.db is invalid (there have been hidden Thumbs.db files in most of my folders since the beginning of time, as Windows itself creates them). Thumbs.db is definitely one of the filenames that need to be excluded.

Yes, this needs to be feature immediately as OneDrive is not able to backup *.pst. I should be able to exclude file type and not have to exclude by folder.
Be able to exclude a specific filename.
it would be nice to exclude more than just specific file types. currently we can exclude all .db files or .iso but we cannot be more granular and say exclude thumbs.db. I know this is possible since desktop.ini is blocked from syncing per Microsoft documentation under Invalid file or folder names section.
