shared file filtering

11 posts in this topic

It would be nice if I could set a mask for files not to be shared - like temporary files made by utorrent (*.!ut I think it is) because if a folder that is shared in ApexDC++ used as a destination folder by utorrent, ApexDC++ starts hashing the incomplete files and denies utorrent write access to it. Besides some hubs go as far as banning people who share temp/incomplete files. And for a lot of other files that you don't want shared. Like for example thumbs.db or similar - you take your pick.

2 developers: Please, add some more popular temp's to predefined settings in future releases :P

PS:

				(Util::stricmp(fileExt.c_str(), ".jc!") == 0) ||	//FlashGet

				(Util::stricmp(fileExt.c_str(), ".dmf") == 0) ||	//Download Master

				(Util::stricmp(fileExt.c_str(), ".!ut") == 0) ||	//uTorrent

				(Util::stricmp(fileExt.c_str(), ".bc!") == 0) ||	//BitComet

				(name.find("__padding_") == 0) ||		//BitComet padding

Yes, it's called a skiplist and it's already there.

Go into Settings.

I try this: *.new; *ut;

And this: *.new; *.!ut;

And this: *.new; *.?ut;

It not work! It's agen and agen hashs "Excel.Saga.tv.[01].ogm.!ut"

My textbox has just "*.!ut;" (without the quotes) and it works fine.

Sure, it was just bit cramped there when I added that, but that has now changed...

To developers:

Hello, when i search for certain sensitive files (example files containing user passwords) on the DC hubs, i am able to find people acidentaly sharing sensitive files, and when i send them message, it seems it will not reach them.

So i would propose developers thinking on adding more exclude/skip phrases to the Sharing skiplist BY DEFAULT:

- web browser folders containing passwords files/keys

- AppData folders

- *:\Users|*\Documents
