Automatically exclude log folders from download - 50 plus sites

We would like to automatically download sixty or so websites. we understand roughly how your program works. in that we can specify the root folder "/" to download files from to our local hard drive.

We need to however exclude one folder from each website, namely the log folder as this is restricted and causes an error and stops the ftp program from running. we therefore would like to exclude all log folders. and as sites are added constantly we cannot really use the exclude feature as this would mean constantly have to add new profiles and specify which files were downloaded and with in excess of fifty websites this would be a pain to do daily.

Any ideas?

If your log files follow a naming pattern, for instance ending in "*.log", you can exclude them from transfer using Filters. Edit the Automated Transfer Profile for each site, and switch to the Transfer tab. Click the Configure button for Filters. Check the checkbox for File Name, and choose to Exclude names "ending in" .log.

Of course, you can adapt this if your log files use a different naming convention.
