Description

Hello,

An option to exclude hidden files from upload would be
most useful for ignoring such large files as Thumbs.db,
the automatic index file WinXP creates for folders with
graphics. Excluding system files should have other
useful uses too.

CVS/RCS subdirectories too.

I second this request...it would be convenient for files
marked with the "hidden" attribute in windows to be hidden
in filezilla so they are not "caught" can uploaded to the
server. An example would be CVS folders which cvsnt enables
as "hidden" so that the server doesn't get all of these
folders on an upload.

I don't think it should filter for CVS/RCS directories since
wincvs 1.3 + cvsnt (default cvs client for wincvs)
automatically scripts the setting of the "hidden" attribute
on checkout, doing all the work for you. It should not be
the responsibility of filezilla to search for folders with a
particular name.

I'd like to be able to define a list of patterns that should
be excluded from upload. For example, filenames ending with
'~'. This would probably be expressed using common globbing
rules, e.g. "*~", although regular expressions might provide
a good alternative.

This is in addition to excluding 'hidden' files, which I
also agree with.

This would also be very handy when having a local SVN repository, because the '.svn' directory would get uploaded too. I now have to export my SVN everytime into a separate folder before uploading.

@ Daniel:
I was agreeing with the submitter of this feature request instead of meaning that FileZilla should hide CVS/SVN directories.

I disagree to your point that FileZilla should not be able to hide CVS/SVN directories, it should be a feature, an option to the user. Not directly though, but more as a search pattern of files which should be hidden.

@ Rick:
I agree to your point that FileZilla should have a feature to hide files matching a particular search pattern.

The custom filters in FileZilla 3 allow hiding files.
