You refer to filename. Think full path instead. You probably need more on the left side of your include.
For the third line, I think the * on the left (it means any number of characters) will take any path prefix.
Filters has more, including what the + means, if you were wondering and hadn’t already discovered it.
@FoxWMulder I didn’t realize this myself until now but here is what you need to do.
Lets say I want to backup all the .pdf and .blend files on my Desktop.
So I’ll create a new job (or edit an existing on) in Step 3 select the folder that contains the files I want to backup so I’d put a checkmark beside “Desktop”. Next click on Filters then on “Add filter”, select “Include expression” now in the box that has the * in it type add .blend, the text box should now read *.blend. Repeat the last process to add another filter right up to the last step where I’d put *.PDF in the text box. Save the job and the next time the job runs it will only backup the .blend and .pdf files from the Desktop.
EDIT: Removed note about a uppercase/lowercase issue that probably never existed.
From my quick testing you can’t do a compound wildcard with an “Include expression”, so *over.jpg isn’t going to work. Now if you know (want to fight with…) Regex you can probably make an expression that will work with an “Include regular expression” filter.
I’ll look into getting a regex expression put together in the next few days and post back once it’s ready.
I’ve since tested it again on another job and it’s working as it should. /shrugs I don’t know how I messed it up three times in a row on three different jobs (somehow getting the .blend and .txt files each time, just not the .pdfs) but somehow I guess did. I’ll pull that note to not lead others a stray.
Is your source selection the root of a drive? Something like just the E:\ drive selected with no subfolders?
The System Volume Information (SVI) folder only exists off the root of a drive, providing you’re at least one folder in from the root the SVI folder doesn’t exist. E:\Movies won’t have a SVI folder and shouldn’t need the SVI exclude filter.
To both include and exclude at the same time gets more complicated, you’ll need extra filters and their order in the filter list will matter. The very last common use case in the filter manual explains how you’ll need an additional exclude filter as the last filter to exclude everything that didn’t match the previous filters. -[.*[^\\]] (In the case of Windows).
Yeah, that looks like a bug. But it looks like just a UI bug. The job should still be saved as 100 “byte”, which I confirmed by exporting the backup job to command line. It still worked as it should in my limited testing.
