WinSCP syncronise script - exclude directories

I am trying to use a winscp script to syncronise a local directory with my web host.

I do NOT want to syncronise two of the folders. One of the folders is called "phpThumb", the other is called "content."

I wrote a script and ran it - but whilst the contents of the directory "phpThumb" didn't get syncronised, the folder "content" DID get copied.

My script is attached - can you tell me where I went wrong?
option confirm off
open ftp://ftp.mydomain.com
cd public_html/mydomain
option exclude "content/"
option exclude "phpThumb/"
synchronize remote c:\xampp\htdocs\mydomain\test staging
close
exit

Open in new window

Hi,
there is only one "option exclude ..." allowed at a time, but you can have multiple exclusion masks separated by ";" (semicolon).
So please try using only one "option exclude ..." statement, like
option exclude "content/ ; phpThumb/"
Should work.
