So I'm still in the process of converting from Retrospect 6 to 11 (Mac). I"m a bit confused about how to apply saved rules to exclude items from backups. If I have an "include" rule (rule1) that selects a group of files, and I then include this as a "saved rule" in the "exclude" section of another rule (rule2), do those files get excluded from my backup? (Rule1 includes a bunch of files, and rule2 excludes all the files included from rule1.) Conversely, if I exclude rule1 in the "exclude" section of rule2, then the files included in rule1 get backed up? (Because they are excluded from the "exclude" clause of rule2?) What happens if rule1 is an exclude rule?
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 C
