Masking Files/Folders when Mirroring (2 posts)

    Is it possible to block certain files and/or folders from being mirrored during the mirror operation or does it always get all the stuff from the folder you've chosen?

    I have a lot of stuff on the local drive and on the server that shouldn't be transfered and would like to block that stuff.

    No, sorry, there is no way to block certain files or folders inside the selected folder from being mirrored during the mirror operation (except for dot files).

    One option would be to write an AppleScript to run a set of more targetted mirror operations, or a set of transfers of only the files and folders that you want.
