File include/exclude filters don't work

Post by rzelnick » November 16th, 2004, 5:39 pm

I select file extensions to EXCLUDE, such as *.bak;*.bk*;*.dwg but the project saves those files anyway. This is a backup project, not an archive project; and it is going to an ftp site. And if I put files in the INCLUDE box, such as *.wpd;*.doc it saves all the other files too. I have tried projects with including only; excluding only; and both in-and excluding in the same project and can't get this feature to work correctly in any case. Please help.

Hi

I was having the same (annoying) problem until tonight, and I found your post while researching, so I will give you the answer.

You need to specify filemasks with a semicolon between and NO SPACES. I found this by some trial and error with a test backup set.
