Before I start trying to help with the project, I want to make sure I understand correctly the concept of what/how UrBackup decides to backup in regards to files. There’s are some inconsistencies with the server and client interfaces and would like to help with getting a more consistent interface/document some extra stuff.
Can you correct me if I get this wrong, but what I understand is:
Default directories to backup:(Server interface) is the same as
Add/Remove Backup Pathsin Win/Mac clients.
- In server and client if
Include in backup (with wildcards)exists it will override
Default directories to backup:
- Based on above if in server and/or client
Exclude from backup (with wildcards)has paths those will be excluded from the backup set.
When installing the client there’s a dialog of:
Where in the source code is the logic that creates the
Default directories to backup: for the client depending on what you select (both Mac and Windows if different locations)?
Where in the source code is the logic that the server settings | General | File Backups is configured and controlled?
