This issue has been solved. See solution.


I have a particular request from a customer.  They need to backup documents from a hidden folder on a laptop.  How can I configure DLO to perform this operation?

Best regards.

Look at adding the share in as: ShareName$. You can back up to a hidden share, so there should be no reason not to backup FROM a hidden share...


Alternative ways to access Backup Exec Technical Support:

If you have the hidden document under Documents or My Documents simply selecting the My Documents in the profile would backup all files/folders under it. It doesn't matter if it's hidden or not. DLO Agent should be able to back it up.

If it's not in the default Documents section and is a part of a Drive you can create a custom selection in the profile to backup that hidden folder.
