Is it possible to create own components for Windows?


#1

Hi

Is it possible to create definitions of own components?
My scenario is that I would like to back some software, and instead of selecting bunch of separate files and directories here and there, just create some kind of config file for a new “component”.

Regards

You’ll want to create a Windows VSS Writer e.g. https://github.com/Microsoft/Windows-classic-samples/tree/master/Samples/VolumeShadowCopyServiceWriter
See msdn for more info on VSS.

Thanks for the tip - VSS Writers are a bit too much for me.
For the time being I think I will just use the large “Include” file setting.

BTW, if an item is both in Included and Excluded, it would be excluded from backup, right?
