Filter Downloads

screenshot of this window

If required, use this page to specify filters limiting which files the Task downloads.

A filter tests a filename against a wildcard-pattern such as *.zip or *.jpg. WatchFTP ignores the difference between UPPER and lower case characters.

Only download files that match these filters: Only download a file if its name matches at least one of the filters in this list.

Enter one or more filters separated by semicolons (;), e.g. "*.zip;*.doc;plan.*". If you leave this field empty, all files are downloaded.

Important: A filter is applied to the filename (e.g. "hello.zip") only, not on the complete path (e.g. "/downloads/hello.zip").

Do NOT download files that match these filters: Exclude a file if its name matches any of the filters in this list. This setting overrides the Only download files that match these filters setting.
