How do you exclude certain files from Restores from Archive?

Recommended Posts

For the life of me I can't figure out how to exclude certain file types (in my case, specifically, .DS_Store files) from restores from a tape media set.

 

Any suggestions / solutions?

 

I'm using Retrospect 9.0.2 Mac on Mac OSX Server 10.6.8

 

Cheers

Retro 8/9 is nowhere near as convenient as Retro 6.1 was in selecting/excluding files for restoring.

 

I assume you're trying to restore from a snapshot. You will first need to go to Retrospect> Preferences and create a new rule that includes/excludes your desired files. Then, rather than using the Restore Assistant, go to the Scripts window and create a restore script that uses this rule. While a bit clunky, it should work.

Hi Tim

 

Thanks for that will give it a go tomorrow and see what happens.

 

RE: your comment: yes: Retrospect 6.1 was a lot easier to use in that regard. It's a shame R9 doesn't have an easy 'exclude' option.

 

Thanks for the tip
