Came across this video from James Rankin. Apart from being an excellent video, it has one important thing which I felt I must note down here as a reference to myself. I always thought
AppData\LocalLow were not synced as part of your roaming profile because they were special in some way. Today I realized that there’s nothing special about them. They are not synced because of a key called
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon. Any folder mentioned there is not synced as part of your roaming profile. Nice!
So to make
AppData\Local roam, simply remove it from that registry key. Then selectively add any sub-folders you might want to exclude.
