I was testing Duplicati on a test System which is part of Windows Insider. For This reason I have the C:\Users\Administrator\Documents\FeedbackHub\ folder with access restrictions. After running the backup (as user Administrator) I got a warning, that files under this folder are not readable:
First I did not notice that you can actually exclude subdirectories in the directory picker, this is why I added a manual filter. I tried multiple combinations, but none worked:
(BTW: Note that the filter field is unecesary short)
Finally, when I discovered that you can exclude by tripple clicking the filter was added:
Exclude File: %MY_DOCUMENTS%\FeedbackHub\
I wonder if the my documents logic should test absolute path in addition, and I wonder if the description “contains” for Exclude Folder/File is correctly described. What am I doing wrong here?
BTW: it also looks like some filters I added changed to different ones (like expressions and regular expressions have been added. The Gui should probably tell me “great we changed it to the following rule”. And mybe even simulate/access the filter to confirm its working?
