Limiting File References

We occasionally find that, in Getting an IDW, there is some part or external reference that is also used in many other idw's, iam's, etc. Apparently Vault will "get" all the referenced files, too - so consequently is seems that a "get" will copy to the local workspace what looks like half the files in the Vault.

Is there a way to limit the "get" to only those files directly depicited on the idw - no extraneous third party excel spreadsheets, files that share common parents - which causes the common parent to be copied, too), long children chains of files, etc.?

For example, if I could tell Vault to limit file references to only the files within a certain folder.

If you are doing a get, you should be able to select what files you want to download to your local workspace.
