Hello guys,


Would just like to know if this could be done.

We do have a desktop that everyone is using.

I have set folder that it would be backed up everyday.

Problem users keep on adding different file types.

Can I set the program to include only Office files and exclude everything that is put into that folder?


Thanks

Hi,


Yes, you can do that.

Please open Backup Properties->Filters->Add include

Check "Enable" and press "Add".

Type: *.doc and press OK

Type the other Office files extensions one by one in the same way.

When you finish, press Save.

will this exclude other files in the folder? and will only back up the files in the Include list?

Hi,


This solution will only include the files from the Include list. The other files will be ignored, they won't be backed up.

Hi,


No, you cannot do that.
