Exclude files from mirror (4 posts)

    I am playing around with the Mirror window. I set it up to mirror a local folder to an FTP server. The problem I'm having is that it mirrors the .DS_Store files too. I thought Fetch didn't upload those files.

    Hi,

    I would check the "Skip hidden items whose names begin with a period" box in the Obscure section of Preferences. Please let me know if that does not fix the problem.

    Thanks,

    Unfortunately, I can't use that option. I use .htaccess files that need to be mirrored too.

    Unfortunately at this point I don't see a way to upload .htaccess files without also uploading .DS_Store files. I will file a request to fix this in a future release.

    Thanks for letting us know about this issue!
