Prevent client from creating system folders and overlay icons?

Hi all,

This has annoyed me a long time and wanted to get to the bottom of it.

Is there any way to STOP the Windows desktop client from:

  1. creating overlay icons and folder icons - I don’t need them
  2. making the sync folders into system folders, for no reason at all?

Of course you can do this after the fact (deleting desktop.ini and removing the system attribute of the sync folders, with no loss of functionality whatsoever), but it would be great to have the option in the first place.

I think there’s an option in the installer to not install the File Manager extensions.
