Feature request - File level backup for files

At the File level backup I can’t choose files, just folders. Why not? Would be good to select individual files too.
For example to backup a truecrypt volume file from the root folder.

Károly,
Unfortunately, that is the current limitation of the product. By the way why would you want to back up a single file instead of creating a simple copy of that file within OS?

So than why do you call it file backup? Why not folder backup? :)
I think sometimes would be useful if I could select not one but, some files from a folder. For example I have 3 different truecrypt volume files in my D: drive root. (these not changing on every day) I realized I can't backup them without backup everything on the drive.
