Oh, *WOW* - it was one of those days. Thanks to you both for your answers. It was staring me in the face, but I had frustration-induced tunnel vision.

Thanks again!

Hi All,

Feeling a little silly here - in a recursive copy, I don't want a particular directory to get copied - it's a hidden directory (.dirname) and I can't seem to stop it - I've tried "exclude=.dirname" with every every combination of wildcards and am now resorting to banging my head against a wall. One of those "tired" things, I'm thinking.

What have I missed in the documentation?

Thanks for any help,
