Ignored Folders not being ignored
May 28th, 2008 at 12:05pm

recently I have discovered that a folder that is being monitored is throwing out some duff information and causing my results to be incorrect. Due to this, I added the folder and sub folder to be ignored. Unfortunately, this doesn't seem to have worked and all of the results are still showing the ignored folder.

This is a part of the combined E-mail - the strange thig is, the file still exists and hasn't been deleted!!!
... combined email message ...

Mmm, never heard of that one before. I looked at your settings, and it seems to me those files should have been ignored - I need to do some testing.
The only "strange thing" with your settings of "exclude subfolders" is this, you now have:

[x] \\beudc1del02\Rez\xmtera
[x] \\beudc1del02\Rez\xmtera\Archive
[x] \\beudc1del02\Rez\xmtera\Download
[x] \\beudc1del02\Rez\xmtera\DownloadErrors
[x] \\beudc1del02\Rez\xmtera\Upload
[x] \\beudc1del02\Rez\xmtera\UploadErrors

As you have a checkmark ([x]) before \\beudc1del02\Rez\xmtera, it will automatically exclude its subdirectories as well. No need for the other 5 directories.
