mikeneal Posted September 19, 2002 Report Share Posted September 19, 2002 I have Desktop edition version 5.6.127. I cannot for the life of me figure out how to exclude folders from backups using scripts. Using the selectors available I select "name of folder matches" and then I enter "F:\cats\". Retrospect backs up the folder and all of it's contents anyway. I have tried all of the variations available (match, match pattern, contain, etc) and I have tried variations on the directory name ( F:\cats, F:\cats\, f:cats, etc). No matter what folder or file, no matter what script, no matter what drive, NO MATTER WHAT, this software refuses to exclude files or folders in the exclude list. It just backs up what it damn well pleases. Why is the simple problem of telling this computer program what files I DO want backed up and what files and or folders I DO NOT want backed up have to be so complicated?
