FSLogix Folder not Excluding

Hi,

I am trying to exclude the Outlook OST folder from being replicated to the Profile VHDX (i would like this to stay stored locally only).

I've created the Redirections.xml file in a central location, and it is getting correctly applied to the profile (can see it in the AppData\Local\FSLogix folder), however, the Outlook OST folder is now creating in both the Profile VHDX AND the _local folder.

I want this in the _local folder only.

What am I doing wrong?

Redirections.xml file below:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<FrxProfileFolderRedirection ExcludeCommonFolders="0">
<Excludes>
<Exclude>AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook</Exclude>
</Excludes>
<Includes>
<Include COPY="3">AppData\Local\Google\Chrome\User Data</Include>
<Include COPY="3">AppData\Local\Microsoft\Edge\User Data</Include>
<Include COPY="3">AppData\Local\Mozilla\Firefox\Profiles</Include>
</Includes>
</FrxProfileFolderRedirection>

Thanks

    Looks like an old post however no answer on this.

    I think looking at above you might need to add below in bold maybe. So that it will create empty folder and anything from now on will not save. I could be wrong :)

    eg:

    <Excludes>

    <Exclude Copy="0">AppData\Local\Microsoft\Outlook</Exclude>

    </Excludes>
