Desktop Sync 9.1.0 for Windows and Mac (5/2/2017)

This Desktop Sync release includes the ability for admins to prevent files with certain extensions from being uploaded by Desktop Sync clients.

Sync Exclusions

Admins can now define a list of file extensions that Desktop Sync clients should not upload to the cloud. Desktop Sync will continue to download existing files with the defined extensions, but updates or new files will not sync to the cloud and remain only on users' machines.
