Pause sync for particular folders


I have a primary laptop, which holds the bulk of my work. I sync to nextcloud for the purposes of mobile access and redundancy.

I have some folders which I would like to be synced to the server, and want the content to remain on the laptop, but don’t want CPU cycles wasted checking them for changes (if I make a change, I could un-pause that folder on that particular machine).

Is it possible to have a feature such that a folder can be removed from the syncing operations without removing the folder from the client, and optionally enable syncing later on?

Examples are folders from previous years which don’t get updated, but still should exist in both locations. Large numbers of small files is the most disruptive.




Great feature which I would also love to see.

Are there any plans to implement the feature ?
