How to exclude VCS folders like .GIT or .SVN?

Post by GregS »

For example, I tried the following when specifying files:
1 <mydir>\*.* all include
2 <mydir>\.git\*.* all exclude

and yet all the files in the .git folder were still processed.

Hi Greg,

Did the exclude lines come after the include lines?

This would be better done within the main filter rather than by the Files to Process UI.

Have a top level Restrict to filenames NOT matching

Code: Select all

^.+\.GIT.+$
Note that this filter uses case-insensitive perl patterns, not DOS wildcards.
