Topic "Need help with file mask/filter"

Author Message


Hi Martin:

Thanks for a great product.

I am attempting to download certain files from a huge directory.
There are multiple versions of the same file in each directory.
I have set the following mask to exclude all files that I do not want to copy.:
| original*; stormgen*; thumb*; *.*>10M*; *_1.png; *_2.png; *_3.png; *_4.png; *_5.png; *_6.png; *_7.png; *_8.png; *_9.png; *_10.png
The mask works fine as the files listed above are hidden from my view.
The problem is that when I do a file copy, the hidden files are also copied.
Hiding them from view is nice, but I also do not want to copy the same files that I have masked from view.
Am I missing something?

Use exclude mask in transfer settings.
