Hi there,

I love using FBackup - it is very efficient and easy to use, but I have a suggestion that would make life easier for me and I guess other users also.

When a subfolder is added on my c: disk, it is automatically checked in my source list if there are already some folders/files selected in the parent folder. Howevever, my default preference is for new folders NOT to be included unless I manually select them.

a) Is this possible now? (I am using v4.8, build 286)

b) If not, can this feature be added in the near future?

Many thanks,

The new files/folders are added automatically in your sources list only if the parent folder was added as a source for the backup.

The fact that you unchecked some subfolders does not change the main parent folder.
