Hello I have read some posts about excluding folders, but I cant find resolution to my case.

I use SynchronizeIt! and CompareIt! to sync changes in a web from local to the ftp server.
It words great the compare function, merge,... congratullations! you make a great tools.

The web have a folder named cache in the root.
That cache folder have a very big structure of subfolders and other subfolders under each subfolder.

I need to exclude that folder /cache from synch comparision and all subfolders, because I dont want compare it, and because it pass a lot of time browsing the ftp subfolders.

I tried the follow (the source is windows and destination is linux ftp server):


(NOTE: the root folder httpdocs affect on this?)

...and a lot of more combinations, but I cant avoid that the program browse into the subfolders.

Thanks, and sorry for any mistakes (I'm spanish).

Hey Grigsoft!! you can't help me with my issue?

It is supossed that SinchronizeIt supports that feature (avoid browsing directories) or not?
In the help program file, at "Folders filtering" chapter, you can read the follow:
- When you specify folder filter (eg. "Dat"), non-matched folders will be still searched for matching subfolders. If you want to limit search to top-level folders only, use this syntax: "\Dat";

I wanna do that same thing, but don't work.
I put "\cache" in filter, but the program browse all the tree under the cache folder.

Sorry for delay with answer, for technical reasons I lost access to forum for some time.
Unfortunately currently exclude folders does not work for FTP - full listing is always received from server and only after that it's analyzed and filtered. This is not correct of course, and I will try to change this.
