Option to ignore hidden files/folders when uploading
Posted 01 August 2006 - 03:03 AM
Sometimes I need to upload from a CVS or SVN working copy to an FTP server, and Smart will attempt to upload all the hidden "control" files and folders inside subdirectories even though my XP system is set to not show hidden files. The local file windows will not show the hidden files, but the recursive processing in the queue seems to pick up hidden files / folders despite this.
I realise there's the option to checkout a 'release' copy from such control systems, which excludes all the extra control files, but this can be inconvenient at times when all you want to do is send up one folder with a few minor changes in it with a plan to let Smart handle change detection using checksums.

I'll double check again tomorrow when I'm back at work.

Thanks, works for now
But, I'd still like to maintain my request to ignore hidden files as there's several other file types similar to this. It's just that the request isn't as urgent as before.
I'm slowly building a list in my filters for the more common ones though, like Thumbs.db and OSX files the start with dot-underscore.

Therefore it's not possible now to implemented the requested feature.

Ah. I see. Will think about it.
I stumbled across this problem serveral times myself. Files like Thumbs.db being transfered although it did not show on the client computer. Would be nice to have an option to disable the transfer of these files automatically without setting up exclusion filters.

- Click Tools > Settings
- Under "General" in the list on the left click "Favorites"
- In the panel on the right, under "Default Favorite" click "Edit"
- Under Options select "Enable" and check the box for "ignore case"
- Under Filter List > Type select "Exclude"
- Click the 'new' button to the right of the word Filter (hover and it will say 'new', it's a sorta dotted-line square icon)
- Copy and paste the following into the Value field: *\.svn*
- Double-click on the words "File (Name)" and a dropdown list will appear. Select "Any" from that list.
- At the bottom of the screen, click "OK" to save your changes.
Hope this helps someone!

The value field is wrong:

I'm using Windows Vista, 64-bit, v4.0.1053.0 and I use the blue "upload/download" arrows to transfer files.
I have, under filter settings for the default favorite:
Enable (ignore case)
Use Favorite's settings (grayed out)
Wildchar | *.svn | Folder (name)
Wildchar | _ts3tmp.php | File (name)

Update - just found an alternative way to do it. View -> Toolbars -> Filter. That seems to work.
Never mind, that only makes the .svn folder disappear from view.

Does it work if you set the filters in the favorite directly instead of in the default favorite?
