    @K7AAY I can't delete it. Every moment there are new cached files. – زياد Aug 28 at 4:19

Go to View > Directory Listing Filters.

There you can exclude the folder and files you do not want to download.

  • Thank you but I want better than this solution, why? Becuase there are a lot of new cache folders every time – زياد Aug 29 at 1:23
  • As I asked. Auto ignore folders that have more than 1000 files. – زياد Aug 29 at 5:24
  • FileZilla does not have such option. And I doubt any other FTP client have. Did you consider using a script for that? After all, it's for backup purposes. You may want to run the backup automatically/on schedule, not manually from FileZilla. – Martin Prikryl Aug 29 at 5:27
  • Thank you for your help Martin. – زياد Aug 29 at 5:48
