Excluding a folder under Selection Criteria?

Recommended Posts

The following selection criteria in my Backup Server script is under "but always exclude files matching:"




"of Folder name exactly matches SubDrive" (Folder name does match SubDrive)




Yet, the script ran and backed up the folder named SubDrive, which contains several GBs of data that I did not want backed up.




What am I doing wrong? Should I enter the path of the folder instead?




Thanks in advance!

I'm glad that Enclosing Folder worked for you. I learned the lesson the hard way on differentiating between Folder and Enclosing Folder and got valuable counsel in this forum. My way of re-paying is to quickly share such information with others when I'm browsing here.
