Please refer to tracker [ 1524642 ] File Exclusion List
I'd like to request this same feature for the FileZilla client software. I'm creating this ticket because I was unable to locate a similar request for the client software.
Frequently I'm uploading directory trees and I don't want to upload 'meta-files' like 'Thumbs.db' or in my specific case '.svn' folders or their contents. I use TortoiseSVN to interface with subversion repos and I end up getting write protected files in directory trees on servers which I do not have root access to. Then, I can't delete the '.svn' folder / recursive files without contacting the administrator(s). Surely this would help more than just Jan and I.
I need to display hidden files in both 'panes' because .htaccess files are hidden on the server and I'm frequently modifying or reading them. Sometimes I don't have shell access and I need to download them to my local disk.
I would expect to see such a feature in the 'settings' window under 'Local file list' and maybe 'Remote file list' as well.
FileZilla 3 supports filters.
