Hi, I am executing a script file with, and I always get an error after successfully synchronizing a folder using a file mask, but I don't get the error if I don't use the file mask.

Here is the section in question, with a few comments about what happens:

mkdir /web-biz/myproj_upload
synchronize remote -filemask="| */Scripts/" C:\Work\myproj /web-biz/myproj_upload
mv /web-biz/myproj /web-biz/myproj_backup
mv /web-biz/myproj_upload /web-biz/myproj
rmdir /web-biz/myproj_backup

After executing that code, all files get uploaded, but afterwards I get 3 errors ("Error deleting file"). However, if I remove the -filemask="| */Scripts/" option from the synchronization, everything works fine!

What might be the problem?

The thing is I'm trying to exclude the "Scripts" folder from the root folder, but only that. I tried with putting the absolute path in the file mask (like this: -filemask="| C:\Work\myproj\Scripts\") but I get the same error afterwards.
So if I have:

i only want to exclude the first folder.

Please attach a full log file showing the problem (using the latest version of WinSCP).

To generate log file, use /log=path_to_log_file command-line argument. Submit the log with your post as an attachment. Note that passwords and passphrases not stored in the log. You may want to remove other data you consider sensitive though, such as host names, IP addresses, account names or file names (unless they are relevant to the problem). If you do not want to post the log publicly, you can mark the attachment as private.
