Getting the hang of excluding files/directories


Recommended Posts

Running 7.6 on Vista home premium


I thought I had set three filters that would exclude

1) any directory named Temp

2) any directory named Temporary Internet Files

3) any file or directory with `cache' in its name


None of that happened when I ran the backup.


Under the filter that begins:

include everything



I had

+ Names excactly matching Temp

+ Names exactlhy matching Temporary Internet Files

+ name matches pattern cache


Apparently I do not understand how this is supposed to work.


See screen shot of exclude dialog here:



It would really be handy if the exclusions were available to edit by hand... maybe they are.


But anyway... what am I doing wrong.
