So, I’m very new to duplicati so there’s maybe something that I’m not understanding, but the “Exclude filter groups” option just doesn’t seem to be working. For example, I have it set to exclude applications but the program files still have a checkmark.
When I manually make a filter it works but the built in groups don’t work, If someone knows why this is I’d like to get some help, thanks!
Welcome to the forum @Flipper
For me, almost no excludes (except those from uncheckmarking) change the checkmarks seen.
That doesn’t mean they are not working. Have you done a backup to see if it actually excludes?
help command says what to expect, tailored to your user. If Duplicati runs as you, you can:
Duplicati.CommandLine.exe help filter-groups
If it runs as a different user such as the SYSTEM user for a Windows service, use Commandline.
Thanks a lot, I think I may have read something wrong because I thought I had read something about duplicati automatically updating the checkmarks to show your filters but I couldn’t find it now so maybe I made that up in my head.
I didn’t really know how to check that kind of what files because I don’t think duplicati gives you a list of backed up filed afaik but after a little bit of googling I used the find command and it didn’t find stuff that was excluded so I think the filters are working, thanks!
