Windows - desktop.ini

I've search to see if anyone else experiencing this issue, but could not find anything. My problem is that when I copy a folder from my desktop to my web servers, SmartFTP is also copying a hidden desktop.ini file. How can I prevent this from happening?

You can add desktop.ini to the transfer filters in the favorite properties. Use this query:
NOT (System.FileName:="desktop.ini")
Maybe you can also delete the desktop.ini in the desktop's subfolders because it is most likely not necessary.
