    i would like to mirror a large main directory, but exclude one subfolder from the mirror. is this possible? i would rather not have to set up mirrors for all the other subdirectories, and there are files in the root dir that i would need to transfer manually with 'put'

    Hi,

    No, we're sorry, but it's not currently possible to exclude subfolders or files when mirroring.

    That's a feature we'd like to add in the future, but we have no timeframe for it currently.

    Sorry not to have a better answer for you.

    Thanks,

    not a problem - i suspected that was the answer.

    Fetch is great btw! i've been using it for about a year, and i was using it way back when - i seem to recall having it on my beige mac in the late '80's...is that possible? anyway, after trying various other "competitors" in the MacFTP universe, i came back to fetch, and find it to be very reliable!!

    Great work!

    Hi,

    Thank you very much, we're glad you still like and use Fetch!

    The first version of Fetch was released in 1989, so yes, it's possible! Of course, it's gone through a few redesigns since then...

    Best,

    I'll add my support to the request for some exclude options.
