I am a creature of convenience on my Windows work laptop when it comes to backing it up.

I have a large Linux repository server at home and one at work where I have two different saved logins and profiles saved which I simply open and click "Keep remote directory up to date".

Windows 7 x64 has introducted "My Music" "My Pictures" and "My Video" which are some kind of stupid directory holder but you can't cd into them to from within explorer though they show up under your "C:\Users\jsmith\Documents" folder.

I played around and added an exclusion custom command "C:\Users\jsmith\Documents\My Music*;C:\Users\jsmith\Documents\My Pictures*;C:\Users\jsmith\Documents\My Videos*" filter which allows the sync to skip over those "special" directories and sync folders which come alphabetically after them.

The catch is their is no way that I can see to have winscp "save" these filters such that next time I open winscp, login to the profile, and click the button, it will include those custom filters.

Hopfully I am just not seeing forest for trees...

Thanks in advance.
