What file types are excluded from Bix sync?

Some file types are automatically excluded when Bix performs a sync.

If you want to exclude even more file types, you can add these in the Settings menu in your Bix for Windows application, or in the Preferences for the Mac version of the Bix application.

You can access these settings by:

1. Right click on the Bix icon located in the Windows System Tray (or the Menu bar on Mac)
2. Click on Settings (or the Preferences on Mac)
3. Click on Filter Extensions.

Excluded file types from Bix sync:

File names:
desktop.ini, thumbs.db, .ds_store
