I realize this thread last saw activity over a year ago, but rather than start a duplicate thread, I'm reviving this one.
Please implement exclusions for watch folders! I don't want to totally alter my Media Library "smart views" just to hide certain files or directories -- I don't want them in my library at all.
As an example, if I have:
And I want to include all the music in that folder and all subfolders, but...
I also have, down a ways:
E:\full albums\Erasure\Singles\Don't Say You Love Me\
Which includes audio that I do want, but also a music video that I don't,
And I also have:
E:\full albums\Wilson Phillips\The Interviews\
Which is people talking about music, and I don't want to include it either...
Then as things stand, unless I'm missing something, my "best option" is to add over 1,000 directories to my library manually, skip the "Watch Folders" entirely, and any time I file my music away, make sure I remember to add it manually to the library, so that I don't (re)index the stuff I don't want.
Please at least consider adding the ability to add watch folders with subfolders "except the following specified..."
