Topic "keepuptodate access denied whith my documents subfolders"

Author Message



I use Windows Vista, I try to run backup of My Documents folder to a sftp server in command line:
open sessionforlivebackup
cd livedata
lcd c:\users\faridux\documents
keepuptodate -delete

once winscp has finished to upload new/modified files and delete obsolete files,
it exits with the message Error 5, Access denied because it cannot access to c:\users\faridux\documents\My musics

When I browse c:\users\faridux\documents in windows explorer I do not see any folder called My musics, If I display hiden files I do not see it neither
Is it possible to exclude this hidden mount point to be taken into account by winscp

Note the problem is the same with the GUI
Thanks for your help

You can use -filemask (or equivalent option is earlier versions of WinSCP) to exclude any file/folder you want.
