Filemask not working on synchronize

Hello,

I am trying to get synchronize to ignore files in the subdirectories (e.g.: "Text Files/Archive/file1.txt"), but it's not working so I'm guessing something is wrong with my code. Could you please advise me? Thanks!

open profile1
option transfer automatic 
synchronize local W:\directory1 "Text Files" -filemask="*/"
close
open profile2
option transfer automatic 
synchronize remote W:\directory1 "Files - Inbound" -filemask="*/"
close
exit

Re: Filemask not working on synchronize

Your mask is include mask, what basically means that it does not do anything, as the directories are included by default. To turn it to exclude mask, prepend it with pipe symbol:
synchronize local W:\directory1 "Text Files" -filemask="|*/"
