Exclude Pattern

Exclude pattern is a way that, you define a specific string and if that sting is present in the File name then that file/directory will be excluded from the backup.

There are 4 ways you can define a pattern

  • Exclude with a specific Extension: excludes files with the specified extension
  • Pattern at the beginning of the file name: Excludes file/directory in with the pattern is found at the start of the file name.
  • Pattern at the end of the file name: Excludes file/directory in which the pattern is found at the end of file name.
  • Pattern anywhere in the file name: Excludes file/directory in which pattern can be found anywhere in the file name.
