Ignore Rules

Post by nano »

Under FileBot Node File options> Ignore Rules I have games|books, but I still get a removed setup.exe from my game downloads being in that same downloads location after the script runs. How can I best adjust this ignore rule to suite my needs?

:?: What does the log say?


The --def ignore="games|books" ignore pattern only works if the file paths contain the word games or books. You may need to better organize your downloads (e.g. parent folder called Games for games) or add additional ignore patterns (e.g. setup|exe|iso) to make sure it matches all the files you want to ignore.
