...and so much more.  When I need to trade files with clients and 
vendors I create accounts for them and they use it as easy as Dropbox, 
but without the limitations.

Good to know.  I tend to synx whole folders, so I haven't had occasion 
to do that.  Kinda makes sense though: if the subfolder is not copied to 
the cloud master, if it wasn't removed in sync the result wouldn't match.

In my case, if I want something no synced within a synced folder I just 
move it some place else.

But maybe my expectations are low.  After years of being limited to the 
narrow requirements of what Dropbox or Google Drive will allow you to 
sync I'm just happy that I can choose my own individual sync folders at all.
