    Hi Anne, thanks for your question. You may be able to write a regular expression to do that. I will open a support case and send you details after testing.

    You can add this regular expression to filter out the folder you want. This is using your example of itsrainingcats:

    [A-Ea-e]\:\\ftproot(?!\\itsrainingcats\\)[a-z0-9\]+\\[a-z\.]+

    This assumes you're filtering on a local drive letter (any drive letter A through E) and that your subfolder is right off 'ftproot', eg C:\ftproot\itsrainingcats\

    If you need to exclude more than one folder, you can do so by creating an 'or' array. This example excludes both folder 'itsrainingcats' as well as folder 'anddogs'

    [A-Ea-e]\:\\ftproot(?!\\(itsrainingcats|anddogs)\\)[a-z0-9\]+\\[a-z\.]+

    You probably will want to test this on a test server, or on a test folder tree before implementing on your production instance as I can't guarantee that we missed something.
