Folders that are NOT included still appear in backup (and cause issues)


#1

Hi,
I’m doing file backups on windows clients and I want to have Documents and Desktop folder backed up for all users on all clients. My setup looks like this:

Excluded files (with wildcards): *.ost;Users\Public
Included files (with wildcards): Users:\Documents*;Users:\Desktop*
Default directories to backup: C:\Users

It kinda works, only content of Documents and Desktops is backed up, but folders are created for all folders within a C:\Users%username% and apparently shadow copy or something is created as well, since we are getting OneDrive directory warnings as described in this topic:

  • I don’t care about the OneDrive folder, so it’s a real bummer to be getting warnings because of it :confused:

Could someone suggest a solution? Maybe rewrite the expressions from a different point a view somehow?
Thanks!
