Backing Up only specific directories

Recommended Posts

I am new to Retrospect. I am familiar with Arcserve and Backup Exec. I am trying to figure how I can pick and choose which files I want to backup to prune my backups. If anyone can provide some hints, I would appeciate it or direct me to a previous post that has information about how. I'm getting frustrated.

If you would like to back up certain directories you can define them as "subvolumes" on the configure->volumes screen.


If you want to back up individual files the best bet is to create a "selector". This is a filter that will back up files based on the criteria you specify. The user manual has a good overview on setting them up.
