GLOBAL FILE/FOLDER EXCLUDE.

Recommended Posts

What would be good for me is an option to exclude certain named files and or folders from EVERY backup job that I create.  This would save me having to exclude these files and folder being filtered out every time I make a script.   Anyone else think this could be of use?

Shade Tek,

Why not simply create a custom Selector to exclude those named files and folders, and then specify that Selector in every Backup script you create?  Selectors are described on pages 508-529 of the Retrospect Windows 8 User's Guide, which is the next complete UG after 7.7—which you say you are using.

Agree.

I have a selector named "_Always Exclude."  The leading underscore means that this selector will be at top of the Selectors list.

This selector contains entries like, "~*.* for MS Office temp files, *.bak, my \temp directory, etc.  Works fine.
