For temporary hiding, you can set filter to :

Code: Select all

 *.*|*.sdr\
If you want a permanent solution, you can add it in the ignore list :
Preferences->Configuration->ignore list
add *.sdr\ in the textarea or in your ignore list file...

Thank you for your help. But *.sdr\ doesn't work on the android version total commander. Does android version needs spacial code?

Moved to the Android forum.
Mal angenommen, du drückst Strg+F, wählst die FTP-Verbindung (mit gespeichertem Passwort), klickst aber nicht auf Verbinden, sondern fällst tot um.

Many thanks to you. It seems like android version doesn't support wildcard in hiding folders. Any rules that containing wildcard will only apply to files and won't be apply to folders.

I have checked the sources, and indeed wildcards and file extensions are only applied to files, not to folders.
To exclude a folder, you either need to enter its name or its full path.
