Exclusions

I want to exclude paths from the agent backup using wildcards but I am not sure of the format. e.g. I am backing up /xxx/yyy and want to exclude anything in the sub-directories under that level which have paths containing */zzz (this could be several more directory levels down), I have */zzz configured as a file mask exclusion but will this catch all I want it to?

The exclude wildcard is indeed * so your assumption is correct.

Hi,

I just want to clarify something: you basically want to backup everything in, say, /home, expect directories named zzz? Or you don't want to back up files named zzz?

Thanks

Yes everything in /home except directories named zzz and their contents

Wildcards do not work with directories exclusions. Noted as feature request.
