Description of my issue:
Hi
I have been trying to set up a rule for RegEx Files and Directories Exclusion which will exclude all folders in the images directory and subdirectories called "thumbs".

So far I have got:
Exclude Directory: #images/(.*)thumbs$#

But this doesn't seem to be working. Do you have any further advice?
Thank you

Hello,

we have some ready-to-use recipes for Regex. By combining them, I think you can use something like this:
#^images/(.*)thumbs#i

I think you should remove the $ symbol since I suspect the path during scanning has a trailing slash, invalidating the regex.
Please give it a try and let me know how it goes.
