how can I exclude the multiple files from a single backup job like I want to exclude the songs and pictures from user mapped drives
Go to your selection list and to the text view...you can include/exclude files based on file extensions from there.
Alternative ways to access Backup Exec Technical Support:
thnaks but can i use *.*flv *.*mp4 *.*jpg......... in a single line or a single entry in File Tab
I've used it in 1 line before quite successfully.
How to use the global exclusions list to create a global exclusion for a specific file extension on every backup job
Thanks In Advance
...the OP states he wants this done on 1 job...not globally!
can u please tell me the syntax/format that how to write multiple extension in single line please.
I used: *.mp3;*.wav;*.mpg etc.
I use these entries but no luck yet
E:/testfolder \*.mp3;*.flv;*.jpg etc /SUBDIR /EXCLUDE
if i enter these extensions one by one then its works fine
what you say now
Still waiting for any needfull advise
Today's a public holiday and yesterday saw the weekend end so I won't/don't go on much
If it works for you, then do so, otherwise go for the global exclusions for all jobs (and as mentioned above):
its not works "E:/testfolder \*.mp3;*.flv;*.jpg etc /SUBDIR /EXCLUDE" in a single line/entry.If i use a single line single entry then it works for me.
As Craig V has stated if putting each extension on it's own line works then do that instead of trying to get them all on one line
BTW I would not mix up \ and / characters in the file paths, use \ in the file/folder path and use / only before the subdir and exclude statements
Also (and I have not tested this) but you might find
E:\testfolder\*.mp3;E:\testfolder\*.flv;E:\testfolder\*.jpg /SUBDIR /EXCLUDE
Thanks very much for the clarification Colin :)
