Skip Directory for Appveyor agent deploy

I've seen web deploy skip directory option but there's no similar option for appveyor deployment.
Is there a way to have this option set in appveyor agent environment.

    Sure, we can easily add that. Will do that this week.

    It's been implemented. If you install the latest Deployment Agent there are two new parameters in provider settings: skip_files and skip_dirs:

    Let me know how that worked for you.

    I actually tried this now "skip_dirs" and I indicated "\\App_GlobalResources" and it still got replaced.

    Deployment job started
    Found 1 deployable artifacts.
    Deploying Web application
    Downloading artifact package (18,860,214 bytes)
    Method not found: 'Microsoft.Web.Administration.Site Microsoft.Web.Administration.SiteCollection.Add(System.String, System.String, System.String, Byte[], System.String)'.

    I got this error after deploying using the new agent.
