Including and excluding files or folders from a DLO backup selection

Each backup selection can be configured to either include all files and folders, or to include or exclude specific files and folders. In addition, specific file types or folders can be specified for inclusion or exclusion using wildcards.

Files and folders can also be excluded from all backups for all users using global exclude filters. Several file types are excluded by default. These global excludes can be viewed or modified in the Global Excludes dialog box.

See About configuring global exclude filters in DLO.
