I have such big folder myfolder1 (has 2500 files inside and 55 subfolders).
Myfolder1, has one folder named myfolder2 and it has 1900 files.

So I want to download all files and subfolders in myfolder1 except all the files that exists in myfolder2. Is it possible to write a filter or something and not to transfer that folder.

what version of CuteFTP are you using? You can probably use scripts and/or a macro. OTherwise why not restructure and move that one folder outside the other? –  Logman Sep 3 '12 at 18:45
    
I use cuteftp 8.3 pro. I don't restructure because "myfolder2" includes temporary files and I don't want to delete them from remote folder. –  trante Sep 3 '12 at 18:50
    
you do not have to delete/reupload any files to move them –  Logman Sep 3 '12 at 19:12
