For years, we have to manage exclude and include list stored in client registry(Windows) or files placed on each clients(UNIX).
I wonder why NetBackup does not manage them in policy settings using specific prefix for exclude and include. Please consider to support prefix for exclusion and inclusion like below.

Pattern 1: using '!'(exclude) and '!!'(include)
/usr
!/usr/openv
!!/usr/openv/volmgr/vm.conf

Pattern 2: using '-'(exclude) and '+'(include)
/u01/app/oracle
-/u01/app/oracle/oradata
+/u01/orace/oradata/*.ctl.copy

Pattern 3: using 'EXCLUDE:' and 'INCLUDE:'
/data
EXCLUDE:*.mp3
EXCLUDE:/data/archive
INCLUDE:/data/archive/finalcial

Hi,

r u saying the feature "include and exclude prefix" in backup seclection of the policy.

If so, it is a nice idea.
