How do I exclude a folder or single file from being versioned? I have a number of folders of stuff that I refer to (deep in my folders), but have no desire to have them versioned. I can't use file type, because my current files that I want versioned share the same extension. I'm sure you have that control in there somewhere, just can't locate.
Second, what advantage is there in building exclude list presets? I don't seem to be able to access the presets when I'm creating a new setup. Where else in the system would these presets be useful?
The exclude presets are gonna work in the final release. It's a bug in the preview. Sorry.
Currently we have no mechanism for excluding specific files or folders deep down some tree. The assumption is that rather than adding one all encompassing folder to a repository, you would add only the folders you want version controlled individually.
Can you give us a more specific example about your setup and what you want to exclude and where? Maybe we can add a mechanism in a future release.

What makes VersionRecall so attractive to me is that it's time and effort efficient to set the version control and move on to doing actual work. If I have to sift through tons of settings every time I need to add a folder to my structure, then the value of the software completely disappears. One way I could see this being done without too much coding commitment would be to expand on the "exclude file extensions" to have a file/file path section. So I would just have to list the following:
(Imagine the |'s are file directory slashes, the forum software keeps on removing them for some reason)
I can easily see at a glance what folders I'm excluding and easily add or delete paths as needed. It could even be set outside the actual application as just a text file somewhere that has a list of excluded directories. Each time the system runs, it checks the text file to see which files/folders to exclude.
This was entirely longer than I intended, but sometimes you have to get rather verbose to get all the details in.
Please understand that this will not be part of the initial release.

On a side note. With additional features like these, I think you will find your customer base for VersionRecall expanding well beyond your current base. There is not a lot of software out there that does what Version Recall does. Many people in various industries will find VR very useful.
