Topic "Is it possible to tell WinSCP to never snyc .DS_Store files?"

Author Message



I sync several image folders (and a few other items) from a folder that a Mac also syncs to/from and it always drops the .DS_Store file into that directory. Is there a mechanism from winscp to block all .ds_store files from ever being sync'd ? The reason I ask is that there is a problem with .DS_Store files, in that if they end up online, they can be read by the public for file structure, etc).

I use WinSCP all the time, and this would be a very useful option.

Sure, just add them to exclude file mask:
