Wildcard to exclude Hidden and System files

Post by *javier.castellgali » 2017-11-18, 11:19 UTC

Hi all:

Does anyone know if there is any wildcard available to exclude from synchronization all files with "Hidden" and/or "System" file attributes?

I mean something similar to:

*.* | *.*[h] *.*[s]

*.*[h] --> All files with the "Hidden" file attribute
*.*[s] --> All files with the "System" file attribute

Thank you.

Javier

I think you can't. But you can setup INI option SyncHideHiddenSystem (read TOTALCMD.chm section 4.b) that will make Sync tool ignore hidden and system files when you hide such files in TC.

it is possible to define a template like Hidden checking the corresponding file attributes, same for System. Then you can use the template is selection or exclusion or coloration with >Hidden >System...
// but not sure if we can combine more than one template ...

Predefined filters are not supported in Sync tool filter.
