So I’m a glutton for punishment and want to back up my whole C:\Users folder on my Windows box. Obviously there are plenty of things in there I DON’T want to backup so I’m putting together a list of Exclude Regular Expression filters to ignore stuff like:
- Duplicat folder
- Temp folders
- Cache folders
- various Firefox, Chrome, Internet Explorer, Edge, Thunderbird etc. just that’s not really needed
I’ve come up with a few questions during the testing of these rules:
- Is there a different between the
test-filtersCommandline options in the GUI?
- How do I deal with folders that show up as
Including folder:in the
test-filtersresults even though they are red-Xed out in the folder GUI when my Exclude expression is added (nice feature by the way!)?
- Has a GUI tweak been considered to allow for a “here’s my expression, will it match this folder path” type tester? (When dealing with a whole C:\Users folder
test-filterscan take quite a while to run just to test for a single folder match…)
