How to not backup files that start with a "~"

usually they are temporary files, locked files etc.

Windows machine.

Thanks!

Hello, yes you can add an exclusion filter to skip files that start with “~”. Edit your backup job and on Page 3 expand the Filters section. Click the three dot menu on the side and click “Edit as text” and add this line:

-[.*\\~[^\\]*]

This is a regular expression that matches files (not folders) that start with a tilde character.
Click Save on Page 5 to save the changes to your backup job.

Hope this helps.
