How to exclude folders?

Postby bari » Thu Feb 16, 2012 12:49 am

Hi,

I've an AndFTp config setup to backup "/sdcard" to a remote server.

How can I exlcude a single -- or better yet, multiple -- folder(s) from that backup? For example, backup ALL of "/sdcard", EXCEPT the "/sdcard/no_backup" folder?

Thanks.

This feature is not available. It has been added to wish list.

Has the option to exclude specific subfolders from an SFTP sync of a folder been added as yet?

Yes, browse remote folders, select one or more folder, then Menu and "Exclude from sync"

Hi.

I'm SFTP syncing from phone to remote.

The src folder I've selected is "/sdcard".

In that folder, I've selected/menu-excluded the folder "/sdcard/Music". Once excluded, I see the "X" on the folder's icon.

I click OK, then SAVE.

Now, I exec the sync -- and that folder is STILL included. Cancel, browse to folder, and it's no longer excluded.

It seems it's selectable afor exclude, but doesn't actually do it.

I'm going to see if we can reproduce the problem. You're doing mirror local sync, correct?

Yes, I'm set up to 'mirror', with local (the phone running AndFTP) set up as master, using SFTP, to a remote desktop, running linux.

just an addl comment/wish ...

addinc rsync to andftp's "arsenal" would be useful. and, might add option for exclusion -- both simple, and rule based.

there are other apps that try to do it, but none as solid as AndFTP -- and, actually, in my experience, none that actually work reliably.
