I'm running the latest FBackup as of this date (just downloaded the one from this link to see if it would fix the issue I'm having, but it did not: http://www.fbackup.com/forum/topic/majo ... #post-3206
) on a 64-bit Windows 7 desktop machine.
I'm trying to select "C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\.hosts" as one of the source files, but FBackup doesn't show the "etc" directory in the directory tree. I have hidden and system files visible but it does not seem to help. This "etc" directory showed up fine when I was running FBackup on a 32-bit version of Windows 7.

Is the "etc" folder backed up correctly?

The "etc" does not get backed up because I cannot select it in the file tree (because it does not show up).

Try to back up "C:/windows/system32/drivers"

I selected "C:/windows/system32/drivers" for backup, but it doesn't stick. After I click Save and then reopen the Properties > Sources screen, it is no longer selected. And when I run the backup, that folder does not get backed up.

As a test I tried selecting more folders: "Program Files", "Program Files (x86)", and "PerfLogs". When I click "Save" and then reopen the Properties > Sources screen, all of those are unchecked but "Config.Msi" is checked. What's going on here?
I should note that when I originally created the backup profile, I started by checking the entire C drive and then went through and unchecked all the folders I did not want.

Please create a new backup job.
Go to Backup Properties->Sources.
Press "Add folder".
Press OK then press Save and run.

I have this same issue of not being able to see the hosts file in FBackUp.
also any files in this directory are also hidden in FBackUp
I found a way to trick FBackup to backup the Host file but the same method is not working for this IIS config folder.

It should work the same way. Can you manually copy those files to another location?

copy C:\Windows\System32\inetsrv\config\*.* g:\Test
3 file(s) copied.
When I use Explorer, I get the same files, If I copy the folder with explorer I get two copies of every file.
