Exclude directories from scan

Is there a way to exclude directories from the photo scan on MyCloud home? It’s picking things up from my music folders, document folders, etc. and I don’t want all of those in the my cloud photo library. Obviously there’s no way to do this in the software but I’ve read that people modified an XML file on other WD devices to solve this but that file doesn’t seem to exist for this one. Are there any other hacks for this device to solve this?
If I knew I would have this little control over it, I never would have bought this device.
