Ability to exclude syncing certain files by type.
Box Drive - exclude syncing certain files by type. I use several software that use this lock file approach and the lock files should NEVER be synced. (sometimes for size reasons, sometimes for frequent uploads and deletes)

Some Filetypes cannot be synced by design, because they are locked. For example some Applications are adding a temporary File with the Extension ".lock".
If we make a whole Folder available offline, the sync raises an Error, each time such file is created or updated in that offline-folder.
It would be great if we could define a List of ignored FileTypes/Extensions to avoid those Error-Messages and recurring sync-tries.
Thanks a lot!
I'm a developer and my projects are synced to box. Only, they are NodeJS projects so I have a huge node_modules folder (up to 150Mb). It would be awesome to be able to prevent a certain type of files/folder to be synced (with a blob for example, or a more user-friendly solution: manually entering prohibited file/folder name/path).
At the moment, this really is a problem for me. I can use pnpm to solve it, but still, this feature would be a great addition to Box!
