it does backup double . and its not because of the NEW_Stream entry.

its becasue of the Directry structure

E:\ProgramData includes all the files and folder below of that... 

even you add the one more stream E:\ProgramData\Folder , it includes twice.

once in E:\ProgramData\Folder

another time in E:\ProgramData

the best option that you have is to make use of exclude list.

policy 1 add the selection E:\ProgramData and create a exclude list as exclude_list.policy1 and keep the entry E:\ProgramData\Folder

policy 2  add the backup selection as E:\ProgramData\Folder make  a backup.

but if i would do this

policy1 add e:\programdata\ and exclude list in (host properties,windows client,exclude list) it will exclude the same for policy 2 (same client)

so can i exclude per policy som how?

nevermind! I figured it out, in the droplist of exclude list i only got "all policies" but when i typed the policy manualy it worked. I thougt it should show me my polices that my client where in.

thx ill give it a try now!
