The current syntax in the latest version of WinSCP is:
synchronize -filemask="|*_LTR_*; *_TOB_*" ...
Though the "option exclude" should still work, althought it is deprecated.

Re: need help on excluding a specific file name during sync

sorry, couldnt catch, kindly could you pls give an example

my script looks like this at the excluding area,
i tried both the "?" and "*" to check but both failing to [b]exclude [/b]

option transfer binary
option exclude ".removed_logs"
option exclude "?_TOB_?"
option exclude "?_S17-?"
option exclude "?_TS_?"
option exclude "*_LTR_*"
option exclude "*_TOB_*"
synchronize local E:\Logs\ /Incoming

an example would help i guess ..

First, I have edited my response, it should be -filemask=.

Even if you insist on using deprecated "option exclude", you need to combine all masks into one. What you are doing that that every call to option exclude overwrite the previous value. They do not add-up. See https://winscp.net/eng/docs/scriptcommand_option
E.g.
option exclude ".removed_logs; *_TOB_*; *_S17-*"
