Skip List Tab


The skip list provides you with flexible control over which files are transferred. Adding a mask to the skip list will prevent any matching items(s) from being transferred.

The ( ? ) character will match any single character and the ( * ) character will match any range of characters. Please refer to our pattern matching guide for more information.

Commands are;  New Entry |  Delete Entry |  Edit Entry

Pattern:
For example to skip files that end with an extension .$$$ you would add *.$$$ and set the comparison to name of file.
