exclude files listed in text file

I am not sure if this already exists or someone else has already suggested it, but..

Is it possible to have a list of files within a text file and have them excluded from a synchronization?

I build a list of files to be excluded dynamically using Powershell and sometimes it can get VERY large.

example from my script file:

option exclude *synchronizefolder.txt;"G????";"G?";"FLAMBOROUGH??TOWN?OF??CERTIF?";"GAG001?CARREFOUR?BEAUSOLEIL?DEC";"GAG001?CARREFOUR?BEAUSOLEIL?DEC???Copy";"GAG001?CARREFOUR?BEAUSOLEIL?DEC???Copy??2?";"GAG001?CARREFOUR?BEAUSOLEIL?DEC???Copy??3?";"G?C??HUSTON?P?S???TCS";"GEORGE?BROWN?TASTE?CAN??MEDALLI";"GEORGIAN?COLL??CERT?";"GERRY?NIXON?LASER?plane";"Glen?Park?Bear?TCS?";"GUELPH?SCH??SAFETY?PATROL?DURO?";

now sometimes there can be THOUSANDS of these and I think there may be a limit to how long this can be.

Can you make it so that it reads from a text file (line after line of filenames to be excluded) ?

Re: exclude files listed in text file

So what's the problem with generating the filemask in WinSCP format from your text file with a PowerShell script?
