Problems with selectors in 7.5

Recommended Posts

I am trying to make a selector that will backup the My Documents, Favorites, and Desktop folders of all users on a Windows XP system.

 

I tried making a selector that looks like this :

 

folder name matches pattern Documents and Settings

and folder name matches pattern My Documents

or

folder name matches pattern Documents and Settings

and folder name matches pattern Favorites

or

folder name matches pattern Documents and Settings

and folder name matches pattern Desktop

 

 

For some reason, the above ends up matching just about every folder inside of Documents and Settings. I tried doing one with adding the windows special folders "Documents", "Favories", and "Desktop", but it also ends up selecting just about every folder in Documents and Settings for some reason.

 

 

Any suggestions?

hi U,

 

Code:



folder name exactly matches Documents and Settings, matching case

and folder name exactly matches My Documents, matching case

or matching

folder name exactly matches Documents and Settings, matching case

and folder name exactly matches Favorites, matching case

or matching

folder name exactly matches Documents and Settings, matching case

and folder name exactly matches Desktop, matching case


 

each one of the above also has the "Include enclosed folders", option checked.

 

cheers.

 

EDITED: actually, made a Selector like what you say you've done it works fine too. check for typos.
