Add Sub-Folders Previously Excluded from Download

Often when I create a project from existing files, I exclude folders from download for a variety of reasons (primarily download size).

There have been several times, after using the project for a while, I determined that I need to use one of those folders. Thus I would like to be able to have PHPStorm include and download these files.

I have tried adding a folder under Options | directories, but the added folder doesn't download and seems to behave differently.

Do I have any option outside of completely recreating the project?

Hi there,

  1. Settings (Preferences on Mac) | Deployment
  2. Select your deployment entry (in case if you have more than one)
  3. Look at "Excluded paths" tab

Should the folder show up automatically on the project list?

Will the "un-excluded" folder automatically download or do you have to do a sync or directory compare?

You will have to download that folder manually: be it by navigating there vin Remote Host tool window and choosing "Download" from content menu ... or by running "Sync with Deployed...".
