Ignoring folders (4 posts)

    Is there anyway to tell Fetch to always ignore a folder with a certain name?

    Thank you, Joseph

    Hi Joseph,

    In order to best answer your question, could you please tell us under what circumstances you want Fetch to ignore a folder with a certain name? That is, is there a specific thing you are doing when a folder is causing a problem?

    Thanks,

    We are using the mirror feature on Fetch to setup backups of all of our websites. There is a folder that we don't have permissions to. Every time it gets to this particular folder that is on all our sites (its put there by the hosting company (Mosso/Rackspace Cloud Sites)) we get an error and it stops the operation. If we can tell Fetch to ignore the error or ignore the folder it would solve the problem.

    Here is the error we get:
    Fetch could not open the folder "aspnet_client" because the FTP server says that the requested item was not a folder or could not be accessed.

    Thanks Joseph

    Hi Joseph,

    Thanks for the explanation. I'm sorry, but no, currently there's no way to exclude a folder when using Fetch's mirror feature, and there isn't a workaround except for "change the permissions of that folder," which we realize often isn't feasible or even desirable. (There is currently no way to tell the Mirror command to just ignore errors and continue on, either.)

    We are thinking about ways to solve this in future versions of Fetch, and I'm sorry we don't have a solution for you at this time.

    Thanks,
