Artifact path matching multiple directories

My project ( builds a website into .\dist and I've configured Appveyor to bundle this directory into a zip file. However, my project depends on several 3rd-party/vendor packages under node_modules and Bower components in vendor which also have dist folders.

It seems Appveyor is finding any folder named dist and turning it into a zip file. I only want to bundle the specific dist folder in my top level project directory.

Is there a way to do this without giving dist a unique name?

    What artifact paths have you setup and what are corresponding folders you'd like to zip?

    In my appveyor.yml:

      - path: dist
        name: Klondike
        type: zip

    I only want it to pick up dist in the top level project directory. It seems to be picking up 34 ones I don't want under .tmp/..., node_modules/... and app/vendor/....

    I also tried .\dist but it picked up all the other directories too.
