Excluding Subdirectories

I am struggling to get exclusion of subdirectories to work.

Consider url like www.someco.com/firstdir/seconddir/thirddir

I wand download everything EXCEPT seconddir.

In the URL Filter\Directory Section I have checked Custom Directories Config

I have an INCUDE filter of "www.someco.com/firstdir"
and an EXCLUDE filter "seconddir"

According to the help simply stating a word should match that word anywhere in the URL, so this should exclude seconddir and below.

When I run the project, it promptly loads everything in secondir.

What am I doing wrong, or have I missed the ponit here somewhere?

Thanks in Advance

The Exclude list looks well. Please change the included keyword to:

Also, please make sure that all File Filters sections contain Load using URL Filters settings in the Location box.
