If you have a Document Set in a Document Library, is it possible to sync only the Document Set?

I created a Document Set, and altered the Welcome Page so that the Web Part was a Document Library, which enables syncing on that page.

However, when choosing to sync, it syncs the Document Library to which the Document Set belongs to.

Unfortunately, from a brief search it looks like the SkyDrive Pro sync service can only sync entire libraries, not parts of them.



Excerpt: With SkyDrive Pro Sync Client, there is no possibility to Sync a partial subset of a document library. By design the entire doc library gets synced and we get local copies of all the files and folders under it.
