I'm using TFS 2015 to build a C# solution. Deep within the folder structure of this solution are folders containing certain large non-code data files. I would like some builds to include these, and some builds to exclude them.

Using the TFS 2015 web interface, I set up the build that should exclude these files. I then use the Repository tab and add the data folders to the Mappings section with a Cloak type mapping.

However, when I then queue this build, it fails with "The item ... may not be cloaked because it does not have a mapped parent".

The top-level folder in the code repository is mapped, of course. Why is TFS complaining about this, and what can I do about it?
