Click this button to have PhpStorm skip the selected folder under the project during download.
These can be sources that you should not update at all, media, caches, temporary files, that you actually do not need in your work.
Exclusion is applied recursively. This means that if the selected folder contains subfolders they are automatically marked as excluded as well.
