Skip files matching regular expression does not work

I use a file naming scheme to mark my test files in a website. For example, files that start with !tc_:


I do not want these files to be uploaded to the production website, so I have created an exclusion filter in Cyberduck. I know Perl, so the regular expression should not be the problem. I have tried:


The trouble is, they upload.

If there is no red text in the regular expression you enter in the Preferences, the expression compiles. Also, from what I can see, the regular expression you provide should match the given filenames. The only reason I can see is that the regular expression setting is cached for a file transfer already added to the transfer window. Therefore, when testing, start a new transfer after editing the skip pattern.

no red text appears in preferences. Have tried restarting Cyberduck, reconnecting to server. No change.

  • Platform set to Mac OS X 10.6

It should be noted that the filter does not apply to files uploaded that are not within a directory hierarchy. Meaning that files explicitly choosen for upload are not filtered.
