Confirmation message when using exclude mask

Hi,
I am using WinSCP 3.72 (build 262)to upload files to a server using SSH (norton Commander interface)

My main problem is, if I want to exclude certain files (for example, the CVS folders that are created by the CVS system), using the "Exclude mask" function which appears in the upload dialog, I am getting a confimation dialog each time it finds something which matches the exclussion mask, so I have to press "Continue" each time.

For cases in where I just have a pair of files which match is ok, but when I have lots of, it's so tiring to upload the whole content having to click "Continue" on each folder (because CVS tends to create a CVS folder in each folder, as you know). An upload which could take 2 minutes can be up to 10 minutes or something like that.

I don't know if that does occur only for me, or if it is a feature. I haven't found any other post about that.

By the way thank you for your great work. This program is simply wonderful, rules SO MUCH!

Please post full text of the confirmation message as I have no idea what message you mean.

The message is:

Copying file 'C:\TEMP\testme\cvs' failed

And then we have two buttons: Ok, Abort
Thanks, I see. I'll fix it.

Am I right that it happens only for files/directories in subdirectories?

Anyway to avoid it, switch to SFTP protocol.

Thank you, prikryl!

Yes, it occurs only when uploading whole dirs and it finds files which match the mask.

I am afraid I cannot use SFTP. I think I can stand with this... but I would be very cool not to have this confirmation message, of course. I'll stay tuned ;)

Thank you so much again!
