Excluding 2 files excludes ALL files in folder
I've been googling this for some time, and cannot seem to find anything on the subject. Am I really the first to experience this?
I have a folder with 9 files. I would like to back up 7 of those. I INCLUDE the folder and EXCLUDE the 2 files I don't want to back up. Result: NONE of the files get backed up!
I've seen this before, the first time I tried Backup Exec 2012 (at another clients site). I couldn't really understand why the backups had so little data on them, until I dug deeper. That time, that problem - and Backup Exec 2012 beeing a gigantic disappointment - made me switch back to 2010. However, this is not an option in this case.
I have now changed the backup job to only INCLUDE the 7 files I do want to back up, and will have the result of that in 24 hours.
I've (finally) been able to submit a support case (after battling with a form and shaking my head when the Platform list only went up to Windows 2008), but I still would like to put this out there in public. If anyone else can confirm the behaviour, please let the world know.
I've used and trusted Backup Exec for many years, that trust is almost gone now, sad to say.
I do wish you luck Symantec, but you've lost me...
