Can't Make a simple script run correctly


Recommended Posts


I have Retrospect Professional 7.7.562 running on a single PC (W7-64bit). I want to set up an automatic daily backup of my personal folders but I want to omit a Virtual Box folder because it’s so large. I can’t make it work. I have done the following:

  1. Created a Selector called “Everything Except Virtual Box Files”
  2. I made the exeption file “VirtualXP.vdi” an "Exclude".
  3. I set the selection to “does match”
  4. I created a script and set this as the selector
  5. I tried this using an immediate backup and it worked
  6. I tried it as a script but it fails to omit the vdi file.

What am I doing wrong?
