I think it’s very good feature. Without it we must use ugly realization with include and exclude files/folders and then have empry dirs in backup.
Of course for very advanced users better to use regex, but not for so advanced.
It will do D2 more user friendly.
But with Regex I have to you Source and Filters but not only one.
How do you see supporting masks in the Source making Duplicati easier to use?
For example, “D:\Data*.au3” or “D:\Data*.au3|*.ps1”.
Combine this with the current implementation of filters and you can be sure that you never can be sure what’s actually is backed up and what’s not.
No. I don’t see the point to use filters in such cases.
If someone has to use them for other cases, I think it can cause a lot of confusion, which is a bigger backdraw than the advantage it will offer.
Also, I guess parsing sources with wildcards in combination with (optional) filters will be much more complicated to implement.
