I frequently connect to a file server which has lots of files on it from mac users, so there are many .DS_Store files, and every other file they drop has a second file that's in the format ._[original file name]. I've tried adding a few different things to the filters section of the connection options to exclude these items, but I haven't had much luck. Any ideas?
Add the file mask to the transfer filters. Then the files matching your filter will not be transferred. However the transfer filter doesn't affect the view in the Remote Browser. It means that all files/folders are displayed regardless of your filters.
Oh, that's what I was afraid of. I'm looking to filter the view as well as the transfers. I guess that's not possible.
